Learn to Fly
Whether you're an experienced pilot or a have no prior aviation experience, we have lessons tailored to your needs just a short drive south of the Bay Area in Hollister, CA. Learn to fly with our professional glider flight instruction that will take you from your first flight to solo, and to your FAA Private Pilot Glider certificate. Additional instruction in cross country soaring, glider aerobatics, and advanced certificates (Commercial Glider and Certified Flight Instructor-Glider) is also available, as well as the training to get your certificates!
Costs of learning in a glider or sailplane are a fraction of learning to fly in powered aircraft. Certification is also typically faster, requiring just 10 hours of solo flight compared to 40 in powered aircraft. This makes it an ideal entry into flight, even for kids 12 and up. Once you are certified, inexpensive access to high-performance sailplanes is provided by local clubs.
