Glider aerobatics has been part of our core business since our inception in 1969. Former owner Les Horvath was a pioneer of glider aerobatics in the US and became a multi-time US National Champion in addition to being a teacher and mentor to hundreds of aerobatic glider pilots. Current owner Jason Stephens is carrying on this tradition with 5 US National Championships, dozens of air-shows, participating in the 2009 World Air Games and being featured on several TV shows. With almost 20 years of experience teaching glider aerobatics Jason can help you gain confidence and mastery over your aircraft through his 5-flight and 10-flight aerobatic courses. Each course is tailored to your preferences, skill level and will be both comfortable and challenging while still being fun. The 5-flight course ($1100) is geared more towards loops, recovery from inverted, and spins. The 10-flight course ($2200) typically covers loops, cloverleaves, ½ rolls, inverted flight and full rolls. Package pricing includes all costs (tows, rental, ground, etc.) in addition to free nights in our bunkhouse during the course and a copy of Glider Aerobatics, written by Les Horvath. Plan two days for the five-flight course and four to five days for the ten-flight course.
All of our aerobatic training flights are done in our MDM-1 Fox which is the pinnacle of glider aerobatics capability and safety. It’s very high speed and “G” limits ensure a maximum margin of safety can be maintained at all times. Video recording of your flights is also available (for a small fee) to aid your learning process in addition to showing your fellow pilots how much fun you are having!
