Spend a day with us

Come out to Strawberry Lakes and enjoy a day of soaring activities.  Learn about flight, lift, thermals, launching, and our organization.  Top it off by taking a flight with one of our highly qualified pilots and soar with the birds.  The $65.00 cost of the flight covers only the operational costs, the pilots time is offered as a free service.  We also have nicely printed Gift Certificates available that make the perfect Birthday or Anniversary present.









Instructional flight packs

To help give future pilots a better feel of what training will be like we came up with a specially priced instructional package.  You can go for 3 instruction flights ($150.00) and learn the basics of coordinated turns, instruments, and basic circuit planning.
