Ever wonder what it feels like to be an eagle gliding blissfully and effortlessly in the sky? Welcome to the world of silent flight. Come experience the joy of soaring with Sport Aviation, at Van Sant Airport, which offers a variety of rides in our sailplanes. Their regular ride takes you to 3,000 feet from where you and your pilot leisurely float back enjoying the serene beauty of power-less flight. The Mile High Ride takes you up to 5,000 feet, almost a mile above the earth, as you soar among the eagles. For those who would like to “dance the skies on laughter-silvered wings”, they offer the ultimate thrill in our aerobatic glider ride as you carve your own roller coaster through the sky.
