Make it a point to do this for the bucket list. Great people and even better flight. Did the extended flight up against the Divide. What an awesome ride. Couldn't have asked for a better day for flying over the Flatirons and reservoirs. Many thanks to all for a great day.

I never expected gliding to be so wonderful. Although we ended up lifting off about a half hour behind schedule, the ride was more than worth the wait. We circled inside a thermal and rose more than 2,000 feet to practically skim the underside of a cloud. The Foothills below the glider provide a picturesque backdrop as you ride on... More

As part of a mystery trip to Colorado, my husband booked the extended glider trip for me as a surprise. On the day of my flight, inclement weather (cold, nasty rain, low ceiling, socked in) prevented our soaring that day. MHG worked with us to reschedule my flight to fit within our tight schedule for which I am thankful. I... More

We had a free day in Boulder and lucky us we were able to call and get 3 flights for the same day. I am pretty sure that was pure luck. This operation is awesome! I took my 6 year old and my husband took our 4 year old. Our nanny went by herself. Our kids are both dare Devils,... More

The views were awesome and it's pretty cheap for the shorter ride. The staff is friendly and fun. The plane is cramped and a little cold but it's really not that bad.

Bought this for my husband. I found everyone to be friendly and knowledgeable. He had an absolutely wonderful time. He's a retired commercial pilot and this was on his bucket list. He came back grinning and hasn't stopped yet:)

My husband took the City View sailplane ride - had a fantastic time! His pilot/instructor was very informative and educational as well.

I purchased a deal for a glider flight for two from Mile High Gliding last December. Mile High Gliding repeatedly rescheduled the flight (with only 3 hours notice) due to poor weather conditions. This went on every weekend for four months. Last week I had to reschedule the appointment due to a work emergency and called them with as much... More
