Soar high above the Nevada desert in a glider! Gliders have no engines - think of them as "pure" flying vehicles with phenomenal views of the landscape. Stay aloft by balancing the forces of gravity, lift, drag & thrust for an approximately 30 minutes of airtime above the Las Vegas desert!

 
 
Starpoints
Drive out to Jean, Nevada for an amazing flight of a lifetime! (Or, choose our optional roundtrip transportation available for an additional charge.)
Knowledgeable and professional, our pilots have been doing this for decades, making this a safe and fun adventure.
Gliders, aka sailplanes, are engine-less aircraft - they get up to soaring altitude with the assistance of a towing aircraft, then ride the desert thermals to stay airborne.
Fly as free as a bird, with no engine to interrupt your silent glider flight for a truly amazing experience.
Sit up front for the best views, and we may even let you fly!
Ride the thermals coming off the desert for approximately 30 minutes.
Our professional pilots all have more than 10 years of experience flying gliders so you can just sit back and have a good time.
Our glass cockpit canopy gives you fantastic unobstructed panoramic views of the Nevada desert.
Check out Las Vegas, Mt. Charleston, Primm Valley as you soar!
This is a unique and exciting tour, cameras are recommended as this is one experience you won't want to forget (optional cockpit video of your flight available).

Description
A glider is an unpowered aircraft - an airplane without a motor. Gliders are amazing graceful machines and are about as close as humans can get to soaring like birds. Just imagine yourself gliding effortlessly, silently, peacefully high above the Nevada Desert, barely a sound to disturb you.

Without an engine, a glider's first challenge is getting off the ground and up to altitude. The most common launching method is an aero-tow. A conventional powered plane tows the glider up into the sky using a long rope.

The glider pilot controls a quick-release mechanism, located in the glider's nose and releases the rope at the desired altitude. Right after release, the glider and the tow plane turn in opposite directions and the glider begins its unpowered flight.

The key to staying in the air for long periods of time is to get some help from Mother Nature whenever possible. For 30 minutes glide through the sky. Ride the desert thermals - columns of rising air created by the heating of the Earth's surface.

The thermals keep these unique aircraft airborne (flight time may be extended if conditions permit). With no engines to disturb the silence - the only sound you'll hear is the WOOOOSH of the wind across the wings.

Our professional pilots all have more than 10 years of experience flying gliders so you can just sit back and have a good time.

Our morning flights offer the smoothest rides, while our afternoon flights may be extended due to optimum weather conditions. Try our sunrise or sunset flights for spectacular photo opportunities!
