What is a glider?

A glider (sailplane) is an aircraft built to maximize its ability to stay aloft without any means of onboard power. The lightweight crafts are designed to carry one or two people and must be launched into the air by either a ground-based device or towed to altitude by a powered aircraft. They are divided into different classes based, for the most part, on their wingspan, which can range from 15 to 30 meters.

    1. Did we answer this question for you? The answer is no, there is room only for the pilot and the passenger in the sailplane. We are setting up our schedule for the New Year. Can we book a couple of rides for the two of you? Mark Lambert
