Description: 1 hour, 20 minutes from a 2800' tow
Our introductory orientation flights are for people of all ages who want to experience
the Joy of Soaring, to fly without an engine - like a hawk. We often follow them
- because they're always in the best lift! You'll be accompanied by one of our FAA
Commercially Rated Pilots and you'll be able to spend your time enjoying what every
glider pilot lives for!
Basic Orientation Flight: $82.00
Our tow plane will pull your
glider 3,000 feet above the airport where you'll spend 20 minutes gliding around
the Elsinore Valley. We may even gain 1000 feet altitude in a thermal, before returning
for a safe, gentle landing. (Approximately 20-30 minutes.)
The "Cleveland Forest Magic Flight": $130.00
We'll go to 6,500 feet on the
San Juan Capistrano side of the Ortega Mountains. With clear weather, we'll see
Catalina and San Clemente Islands to the West. Sometimes, we'll be floating far
above a magic carpet of coastal clouds. To the East, we have the 10,000 foot plus
peaks of Baldy, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto. Should you want to, we'll share the
flight controls and show you how to do simple maneuvers by yourself. You can even
experience the thrill of feeling "light as a feather". (Approximately 40-45 minutes.)

Join me in congratulating LESC's newest Glider Pilot, Blake Poe. He passed his Private Pilot, Glider Add On Practical Test with DPE, Dan Gudgel today.
Make sure to give him a well-deserved "Job Well Done" the next time you see him at the airport.
