Overview
More
Hawaii’s oldest and largest soaring operation, Original Glider Rides has been operating tours at Dillingham Airfield since 1970. Soaring the skies over northwest Oahu, panoramic vistas unfold as your pilot guides you in this bubble-topped aircraft. You’ll be in awe as you fly on the wings of the wind with sights and sensations you’ve never experienced before. A 20-minute flight can attain altitudes of 3,000 ft. or more. Single passengers can kick it up a notch with specialized add-on flight services like aerobatic loop-d-loops and Eagle mini-lessons.

Our pilot had approx 35 years of glider experience and was an amazingly smooth flyer. We did the aerobics flight and it was an amazing experience. Between the thrill and the incredible view, you can’t beat this.

Awesome flight, my 14 year old did it and loved it! Pilot allowed my son to steer some and was very helpful. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I have flown in a bi-plane, a hot air balloon and this experience tops both of them. Even though there was not a lot of wind that day (May 11th), I still had a fantastic ride. I loved soaring over the ocean and the mountains....More

Due to power outage at the glider port, the tow plane couldn’t be fueled, hence we never got off the ground! MAJOR BUMMER after a 55 minute drive after calling to confirm it was on!
