Turn your world upside down with a thrilling aerobatic ride. Strap on a parachute, climb into out aerobatic glider with an experienced aerobatic pilot, and hold on tight for the ride of your life. Pull G’s. Float in zero gravity. Loop-d-loop. Roll wing-tip to wing-tip. Draw clover leafs in the sky. Pull straight up vertically into a hammer-head stall, and then fall off into a vertical dive -- straight down. At 2 positive G’s, wing-overs are the most mellow maneuver on your aerobatic ride.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in a dog-fight? You can with an aerobatic flight. Aerobatic maneuvers were invented to evade enemy pilots in aerial combat and get into position to shoot them down. Our ASK-21 aerobatic glider has the look and feel of a fighter jet. Wrap-around instrument panel. Bubble canopy that opens much like the ones on fighter jets. Forget seat belts, you’ll be strapped into a five-point harness. Our aerobatic glider is highly maneuverable. And our aerobatic pilots are among the best anywhere.
Your flight is tailored to you. Your pilot can perform nonstop no-holds-barred aerobatics or take a more gentle approach, performing one maneuver at a time to check your comfort level before continuing.
The ASK-21 is a very strong and agile aerobatic glider. It is built to handle more G forces than most of the fighter planes of World War II. But our pilots hold the G’s at a maximum of 4 positive. At 4 positive G’s you will feel your body pushed down into the seat. Try raising your hand and you find it’s not so easy at 4 G’s.
For the aerobatic ride, the glider pilot tows to between 4,000 and 5,000 feet before releasing the towline. (Relax and enjoy the tow; the views are breath-taking.) This tow altitude allows your aerobatic pilot to perform 7 to 10 minutes of thrilling maneuvers.
You have the option of adding a mini-lesson to your aerobatic flight. Choose this option and after the aerobatic portion of your flight is completed, your pilot will give you an introductory training flight. He or she will show you what each flight control does and then you get to fly the glider.
