Introductory flights

Let’s Go Gliding!

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

Thumbs up after an enjoyable flight

Your first glider flight (or first in a while) can be peaceful and serene, providing an awe-inspiring new perspective on our home. Take in 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 se the world, it happens to be especially spectacular when you’re gliding here in Southern Alberta!

A more adventurous guest might enjoy the thrill of slicing through the atmosphere at 150km/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.
