Come Out and Fly May 1-5 and July 31 - Aug 4

Come out and fly with us!  A tow pilot is scheduled, and a board of trustee member will be available for general assistance. These weeks are intended for folks who have flown Air Sailing in the past, or at least are current, proficient mountain pilots.

  • If you’re new to us and new to mountain flying, please check out the Thermal and Cross Country camps – wonderful introductions to flying the desert and mountains
  • If you’re new to flying gliders, consider contacting the Nevada Soaring Assn for flight training, and attend one of our camps next season!
  • Soaring organizations are encouraged to join us with your members, but please contact us well in advance to be sure we’re giving you the support you need and that expectations are aligned.

These weeks don’t fit your schedule?  Go to the home page and request tow pilot support on the operations calendar.  Tow support is good on weekends.  During-the-week support depends on matching up glider pilots with one of our volunteer tow pilots.
