Gliders take passengers on silent and amazing flights

The Seattle Post Intelligencer features a story on glider flying over the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Glider passengers fly over the island to take in the gorgeous scenery and crystal blue waters.

You can rent a seat on a glider with an FAA certified pilot to handle the controls. Gilders have no engines, making the flight whisper quiet. Small planes tow the glider to reach a flying attitude, and then release the cable to start the glide down.

Glider flights can be placid trips downward towards Earth, or they can be daring flights with rolls and loops for more hearty passengers.

Have you flown on a glider recently? Do you have any stories to share? Leave a comment below and tell us about it.
