My family thoroughly enjoyed the Soaring glider experience over the beautiful North Shore coastline & the rugged volcanic mountains. Thanks to Mr. Bill, the owner & his erstwhile glider pilot "Tall" Don. But A VERY BIG thank you & appreciation to LEE, who transported us & back to Waikiki. Man, he is a wealth of information on Hawaii, entertaining & went out of his way & took us around the spectacular North Shore beaches (where we fortunate to see 3 turtles feeding!!). To top it all, Lee took us to Nicos, the restaurant, at tha honolulu fish market. The sea food was the freshest we've eaten!! Brilliant outing for us Aussies, from "Mr. Bill" & his buddies. Well done.
The view from a bubble-topped sailplane is out of this world. High above Oahu's famous North Shore, average visibility is 30-40 miles. Take a ride with one of our million-mile pilots, and watch the breathtaking beauty of the island unfold below.
See the island, in a sleek high-performance aircraft, soaring the skies over northwest Oahu. Panoramic vistas unfold as your pilot guides you in this bubble-topped aircraft; on the wings of the wind with sights and sensations never experienced before.
Depending on the length-of-ride and weather conditions, you can see all of the North Shore and most of the interior of the island including Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head and Honolulu to the South. A 20-minute flight can attain altitudes of 3,000 feet or more. Mother Nature sometimes has a say in where we can fly and how high we can get (because of cloud-cover and wind-conditions). Seating is "cozy"
