In this method, after a short period of ground school, the instructor and student start at the top of a shallow hill. While under the instructor’s guidance, the student runs down the hill and launches the glider to an altitude of five to ten feet. For the first flights, the student may land the glider...

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.
