Most of our rides are given in the high performance fiberglass Grob 103 gliders. You can elect to take your ride in the historic schweitzer 2-33 which is made from aluminium and fabric. The 2-33 was the foundation of most glider clubs across America in the 60's and 70's. While it may not glide as far as the Grob, it can climb just as fast in a thermal and it gives you a great sensation of hanging in the air. Schweitzer was an American company based in Elmira, New York
