Glider Rides


Have you ever dreamed of soaring gracefully with the birds, the silence broken only by the sound of the wind? Skylark North can help you fufill that dream with their variety of glider rides, ranging from the short and gentle Granny Sleigh Ride, our popular Scenic Rides, or our Best Ride, a flight of thirty minutes in a high performance, fiberglass sailplane.


If you're interested in learning to fly, we suggest the Basic Orientation Flight, a hands-on lesson in flying a glider.


Regardless of the flight you choose, your glider will be towed to altitude behind a high-powered, single-engine airplane. Upon reaching your desired altitude, you will release from tow and begin to experience the thrill of motorless flight. After soaring over the scenic Tehachapi Valley, and perhaps exploring the tree-covered ridges of the Tehachapi Mountains, your instructor will guide the glider safely back to the airport for a smooth landing.
