What's a Glider?

 

A glider (or sailplane) is a type of aircraft used in the sport of gliding.  These aircraft typically hold 1 - 2 people and are aerodynamically streamlined and thus capable of soaring in rising air.  Gliders are generally constructed from either metal or fiberglass structures and are noted by their long, thin wings and slender fuselage with a narrow, but fully enclosed cockpit.

Our operation uses the two-seat ASK-13 for basic instruction and scenic rides.  Coming next year, we anticipate adding the even higher performing DG-1000 to our fleet for scenic rides.
