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.

Great way to get a different perspective on the island especially if you have done everything else. Pilot and crew were relaxed and entertaining. They really seemed to enjoy what they do.

Our gliding tour was fantastic! We took a 20 minute flight and were amazed at the view. We went on a 2 person flight, so the seating was very tight. It was worth it though. I'd highly recommend it.

If you have acrophobia you'd better choose the scenic. If you want to have exciting experience you choose the acrobatic.

It was beautiful and peaceful. We had hotel pickup to the destination which was cost $90 for 2 ppl. I thought was a little high. That was the only downfall. Other than that highly recommend this company.
