Gliders-Eagles Nest Airport-Waynesboro, VA
Sunday, April 24, 2011
This airport is right behind Mom's house. They offer plane, helicopter and glider rides. I wanted to ride the gliders with Meghan so we went up there. Unfortunately they had no spots open for the remainder of the day so we just watched what was left.
It's so cool to see the host plan with a big rope attached to the glider. They go up 3000 feet and then the rope is released and the glider is off. It rides for anywhere from 25-60 minutes depending on the wind conditions. They live in the Shenandoah Valley and there is always wind.
We are going to reserve a time for when we come back next time. Can't wait!
