Airplanes flying without engines

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.
