Most people call these aircraft GLIDERS but.......
SAILPLANE is a better name for an aircraft that can soar for hours on rising
currents of sun-warmed air, fly miles away and return to home at the end of the flight.
You are invited to visit us at Lake Village Airport for an introductory flight in one of our FAA-certified Schweizer 2-33A sailplanes. The ride will last from 15 to 30 minutes depending on how many thermals (columns of warm rising air) we find.
All introductory flights are given by commercial glider pilots licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Please contact us to schedule an introductory flight today!
