Sylvania Soaring Adventures has complete glider instruction programs for individuals with no prior experience as well as transition programs for power pilots and those seeking advanced glider ratings.
The FAA specifies the criteria for obtaining your glider rating. Our experienced staff will be more than happy to discuss these requirements with you. When you decide to obtain your rating, our FAA Certified Flight Instructors will work with you to prepare you for the appropriate examination.
Licensed power pilots will find that the transition to a sailplane rating is fairly simple. Generally, solo flight can be accomplished after 10-15 instructional flights. A flight test, but no written exam, is required for a sailplane rating. Adding a glider rating to your pilots license counts as a flight review.
