Introductory flights

Let’s go gliding!

Fly with Cu Nim as a guest for the experience of a lifetime!

Your first glider flight (or first in a while) can be peaceful and serene, providing an awe-inspiring new perspective on our home. Get a breathtaking view of the Rockies, gain a new appreciation of the foothills, smile back at the Calgary skyline to the north, and admire the transition to the endlessness of the prairies!

Gliding is always the most beautiful way to see the world, it happens to be especially good when you’re gliding here in Alberta!

A more adventurous guest might enjoy the thrill of slicing through the atmosphere at 150+km/hour, climbing 10 feet per second in a thermal, or testing your stomach with some light aerobatics! If you’re interested, we can coach you through your first few moments of piloting!

It’s better than you can imagine.

What you need to know:

  • Weight limits: The max passenger weight is 242 lbs including all clothing (this is a safety limit, no exceptions)
  • Age/height limits: As long as the passenger is comfortable we’re happy to fly them. As a rough rule of thumb, we’d recommend age 10 or older. Below 4′ in height, outwards visibility will be limited.
  • Mobility challenged: We can accommodate passengers (and pilots) with mobility challenges. Our training glider can be equipped with hand controls.
