Take a flight with us and experience the Joy Of Soaring!
You can also share the experience with another passenger in our Schwiezer 2-32 glider!
(prices listed below are for each passenger)
YouTube Video Introductory, orientation flights are offered for people of all ages who want to experience the Joy of Soaring, to fly without an engine - like a hawk. We often follow them - because they're always in the best lift! You'll be accompanied by one of our FAA Commercially Rated Pilots and you'll be able to spend your time enjoying what every glider pilot lives for! Should you want to, we'll share the flight controls and show you how to do simple maneuvers by yourself.

Since we’re a club, these flights include a 6 month Associate Membership and should you decide that you would like to join the club as a Full Member before that 6 months expires, we'll rebate the fee of our Basic Orientation Flight (regardless of which flight you take) from your Initiation fee as our way of encouraging you to find the Joy Of Soaring for yourself.

To make reservations, you need to select your flight below and then call or email the LESC Scheduler who will help you pick a date and time for your flight, making sure we have a glider and pilot ready and waiting when you come to the airport for your adventure.


Our Basic Orientation Flight: $8200
Our tow plane will pull your glider 3,000 feet above the airport where you'll spend 20 minutes gliding around the Elsinore Valley. We may even gain 1000 feet altitude in a thermal, before returning for a safe, gentle landing. (Approximately 20-30 minutes.)

The "Cleveland Forest Magic Flight": $13000
We'll go to 6,500 feet above sea level above the Santa Ana Mountains. With clear weather, we'll see Catalina and San Clemente Islands to the West. Sometimes, we'll be floating far above a magic carpet of coastal clouds. To the East, we have the 10,000 foot plus peaks of Baldy, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto. You can even experience the thrill of feeling "light as a feather". (Approximately 40-45 minutes.)
