M-ASA is a great place for your first glider flight. You’ll fly with an FAA-licensed commercial glider pilot in one of our two place gliders.
We typically have flight operations Saturday and Sunday from mid-March through the end of November weather permitting. Please schedule your flight in advance by contacting our membership chairman at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
M-ASA offers two different options for your first glider flight. The first option is an Introductory Glider Ride. Cost: $80. M-ASA accepts personal checks only. We do not accept cash or credit cards. Depending on weather conditions, a typical flight last about 20 minutes.
The second option for a glider flight is through the FAST program sponsored by the Soaring Society of America. For more information on this more extensive first flight program and to purchase a FAST voucher please visit the Soaring Society of America’s webpage at: http://www.ssa.org.
Those who are not members of M-ASA must sign a M-ASA Guest Waiver agreement form. If the passenger is less than eighteen years of age then a parent or legal guardian must also sign the waiver.
For your comfort and safety, you will need to meet certain weight and height requirements. Passengers can be up to around 6’5″ tall and weigh no more than 240 lbs. Small passengers and children will be evaluated for their comfort and ability to see out of the glider. Safety is our primary goal.
