Awesome Sights, Sounds and Sensations!

The soothing whoosh acts as balm to your soul as you soar near hawks and other winged creatures while admiring the inspiring views of the Coachella Valley.

Certified pilot

Let it breeze over you in a safe, sturdy glider flown by a Palms to Pines Gliding FAA certified pilot out of Thermal Airport (KTRM), aka Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport just 20 miles east of the Palm Springs business district in the Coachella Valley. For a small added fee, we can also fly out of Bermuda Dunes Airport (KUDD) which is a convenient 9 miles closer to Palm Springs. Speaking of the Coachella Valley, the weather is usually so fantastic that there are very few days we stay on the ground! Don’t forget to bring a camera on your glider ride. All rides are for one passenger only.
