During a Tandem Discovery Flight at Wallaby Ranch, you will feel confident and relaxed with the wind in your face and your well trained instructor by your side. You will enjoy the bird’s eye view of Wallaby Ranch as you are being towed 2,000 feet into the air. Once you release from the ‘tug’, as we call it, you will free-fly for approximately 15 minutes. Your instructor will show you how to control the glider. You will be able to “fly” your first time up! You return gently to earth on a slow glide with a smooth rolling landing. You will never forget this amazing experience!
Tandem Discovery Flights are for practically everyone. People from 4 to 90 years old, and from 35 to 240 lbs have experienced flying in its purest form at Wallaby Ranch. It is the safest place to fly! NBC’s Today Show chose Wallaby Ranch when they had Al Roker fly! Al Roker gave his experience at Wallaby Ranch such rave reviews, Matt Lauer, on his own, visited and flew here too!
The best conditions for a Tandem Discovery Flight are in smooth air and calm winds, generally in the morning or late in the afternoon. Flying begins everyday at 8:00 a.m., weather permitting. No appointment is necessary; just show up and have the time of your life!
