We offer demonstration flights for individuals with disabilities, both physical and developmental. Thru therapeutic recreation rides we offer these kids and adults the ability to escape, if only for a while, and show them what soaring can be and give them ability to fly like an eagle.
We use FAA approved sailplanes which have been modified with hand controls so even individuals who are confined to a wheelchair or have limited use of their legs, can learn to fly as well as any able bodied pilot. Our instructors donate their time to keep the cost to the students as low as possible. Our flight training program is available to students based on their abilities who can solo in gliders and attain their FAA private glider license.
We can provide presentations, motivational talks and even bring a sailplane to your location for events or meetings.
Partnering with the Tucson Soaring Club and flying at The El Tiro Gliderport, west of Marana, AZ
