I went for a glider ride and it was fantastic! Rick the pilot was awesome! He let me "fly" the glider which I did not do very well.. It was absolutely beautiful to see the sights and take pictures and videos. Would do this again!

I'm a power pilot and found the glider experience very different. best take a short introductory ride. Take offs and landings were the highpoints for me....A+ for Sundance Aviation!

Staff and pilot are tops in smiles, quality accommodations and professional certifications. Sailplane flying has all the ingredients of a soulful experience you will feed on for years to come.

We had to reschedule our glider ride on the afternoon of our scheduled ride because of relatively high winds, but the wait was definitely worth it. You should be aware that the glider rides are for one person (in addition to the pilot) at a...More
