Gliders fly over Lake Tahoe, California coast, Mt Whitney, Mt Shasta, and Big Sur without using fuel.
Gliders ride air currents to stay up and travel far, and are capable of traveling hundreds of miles.
Soaring is enjoyed by men and women, children, and families alike. Here's a preview of some of what this safe, eco-friendly sport has to offer. See why so many youth and families are joining their local soaring club and learning how to fly gliders.
You can take a ride or learn to fly, for information visit SSA.ORG
