SIX REASONS TO GET A GLIDER RATING
 
Always wanted to learn to fly sailplanes just because it sounded fun?
 
Here are a few more reasons to consider -
 
1. Soaring makes any pilot a better pilot with advanced training. Even the U.S. Air Force Academy starts new pilots in sailplanes. Many flight instructors send their newly licensed students to add a glider license.
 
2. Counts as a Bi-annual Flight Review for all categories. Get current and accomplish a whole new rating at the same time.
 
3. Less Costly. Average C172 hourly rental $100/HR. Average sailplane trainer rental $40/HR (and no gas to buy).
 
4. A more expert understanding of Weather using mountain waves, thermals and ridge lift. 
 
5. The intellectual challenge of Powerless Flight. Sailplanes in Nevada often stay aloft over 5 hours and fly hundreds of miles.
 
6. Safe, Natural Sport compared to general aviation. Get in touch with the sounds, sensations and special environment of pure, silent flight away from crowded airports and air traffic.
