Because flying is weather dependent, here’s how it works:
Choose a day you would like to go and we will reserve the bus for you free of charge. You will not be charged until the day off your tour.
The Morning of – We will call The Gliderport and check the weather on the website to determine if they are flying tandems. Torrey Pines is lucky enough to enjoy flyable weather about 300 days out of the year, so there’s a good chance they are flying! If it’s flyable, then we will choose a time and head on down. The MOST COMMON TIME for these flights is between 12:00 - 2:30 pm.
WRITE – When you arrive, you’ll fill out a legal waiver and do a video waiver, which takes about 10 minutes. Then, you complete a one-page, temporary membership application to the Torrey Pines Gliderport flight school. When you’ve finished the paperwork, you then go meet your tandem pilot! Your pilot will give you some basic ground instruction, and you’re off!
FLY – You’ll enjoy an incredible 25 minute flight over the beautiful Torrey Pines coastal cliffs. You’ll get a bird’s eye view of the emerald Torrey Pines Golf Course, stunning mansions along the cliffs, and miles of dramatic coastline. When it’s over, you’ll land right back where you took off. Sometimes the winds get light, and when they do, you’ll land safely on famous Black’s Beach for a quick 15-minute hike, back to the top of the cliff.
