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.

Located at Dillingham Airfield, it's best to rent a car to get here. Super friendly staff/co-pilot. They have a few options for flying, depending on the length of flight and style (scenic or acrobatic). If you have air-sickness, stick with the scenic flight. Overall, if...More

This is something I’ve wanted to do for three decades and definitely worth the wait. It was a beautiful day so the scenery was spectacular! As a pilot myself, I found it particularly fascinating to be pulled behind another aircraft and then cut loose...just so...More

Exciting activity! You can have a beautiful sky view of north shore of Oahu island and also thrills of acrobatic gliding. I'm sure you'll like it.
