Overview

Hawaii’s oldest and largest soaring operation, Original Glider Rides has been operating tours at Dillingham Airfield since 1970. Soaring the skies over northwest Oahu, panoramic vistas unfold as your pilot guides you in this bubble-topped aircraft. You’ll be in awe as you fly on the wings of the wind with sights and sensations you’ve never experienced before. A 20-minute flight can attain altitudes of 3,000 ft. or more. Single passengers can kick it up a notch with specialized add-on flight services like aerobatic loop-d-loops and Eagle mini-lessons.

It was beautiful and peaceful. We had hotel pickup to the destination which was cost $90 for 2 ppl. I thought was a little high. That was the only downfall. Other than that highly recommend this company.

This is a "bucket list" item! You might think that you've died and gone to heaven, since it certainly feels that way when youre soaring quietly over the Pacific with the birds. A view of Hawaii and the North Shore like no other. Magnificent views,...More

Professional but relaxed pilot. Always a good sign. Amazing views. Would do this again! One caveat. Two small men were really cramped in the back seat. If you have any size to you,take a solo ride.

Very friendly instructor + tow pilot. Was lucky to have great conditions - aerotow to just over 1000 feet on second flight and made it all the way up to 2000 feet. Beautiful scenery, including whales out at sea. Looking forward to coming back.

Scenics were breathtaking. Don't take the 40 min ride since weather sometimes don't provide enough lifting winds. 20 min of 30 min recommended. If possible, ask the pilot to fly west over the lighthouse area; it's really beautiful over there.

Our mistake is that we did a helicopter ride prior to this. So drifting over the same area for 20 minutes seemed expensive compared to what we got for a little more money. Very tight plane, and the pilot was not a happy individual. The...More
