Gliding with the York Soaring Association

Joe Fresh and Ann decided to have an adventure in the sky so they climbed into gliders and flew high above Arthur, Ontario with the York Soaring Association. Strapping into the front seat of a small, unpowered, two seat aircraft gives you a great view as the tow plane trails a long rope and quickly gets you airborne.
The soaring association is a popular destination for those seeking the thrill of flight - just over an hour north west of Toronto.
The takeoff

"Our "Intro Ride" includes a 3000' aerotow, up to 30 minutes of soaring 'free flight' and a smooth landing. Feel the Earth's energy lift the glider and sustain powerless flight, try your hand at flying the 60' wide aircraft with the guidence of one of our Transport Canada licensed instructors, maybe even some light aerobatics or just enjoy the serenity of soaring like a bird - it's up to you!"

You can get a chance to pilot the glider under the direct supervision of the experienced pilot, or you can just enjoy the flight. These young kids were very happy after their flight.
