Ever watched a hawk fly higher and higher without ever flapping his wings? That is what soaring is all about. Gliding higher, farther, faster, on the silent wind with a spectacular panoramic view of the earth. An absolute sheer pleasure. Sharing the sky with another glider and a hawk is an experience you will never forget. Leave the engine at home and fly like the birds.
