Three More Pilots Among Us

A wet spring has turned into a fabulous June! There have been plenty of soaring days with pilots filling the sky. And, there’s also been smooth, light wind mornings and late afternoons for new pilots to get their first flights. Congratulations Dave Beig (who came all the way from Idaho), Alan Wengren, and Thomas Goff. Thomas ended up with four flights in just over 24 hours!

In-flight Videos

We are now offering in-flight videos of your tandem! Your entire flight is recorded using a video camera mounted on the wing, edited, and set to music. The end result is a beautiful record of your flight. The edited videos are approximately 3-5 minutes. For more information or to reserve your flight and video, please call 1-800-688-5637.
