This was a totally awesome experience. I wanted to take my boyfriend and found out it was closed a year ago. Wish it was still open! Pilot was amazing, better than a roller coaster! A life time experience I will never forget!

Seeing Durango area from the inside of a sailplane is one of the most exciting experiences available. The total silence is spectacular and a must for anyone who loves flying.

The Durango Soaring Club ceased operations last Fall. It was a successful business for 25 years, but they decided that was enough. Don't plan on soaring on your next Durango visit, but please visit anyway.

Awesome sights and cool weather mornings made for a smooth ride. Loved every minute! It went by so fast ( I think it was a 20-25 minute ride) it seemed we were landing right away. Very courteous and professional pilots and staff, highly recommended!
