The Original Glider Rides

 

The Original Glider Rides are sailplanes, not hang gliders, and your Oahu-bound clients might want to consider taking one during their vacation.

The company offers piloted flights by sailplane—which operates without an engine--along Oahu’s North Shore ridge of the Waianae mountain range, where trade winds create some of the best updrafts in the world. Scenic, acrobatic and “hands-on” mini-lessons are available.

Prices for a scenic ride start at $59 for one person, $98 for two, for 10 minutes. A 10-minute mini-lesson costs $79, and rate for an “acrobatic” flight starts at $149 for 15 minutes.

Flights up to 60 minutes can be booked, and a combination of all three of the above can be arranged at a starting rate of $169 for 15 minutes. All bookings are commissionable at 15 percent. Visit www.honolulusoaring.com.
