Overview

Scheduling

Let's fly gliders at Mile High Gliding. Check out our website for current prices and instructor contacts. Coordinate with instructors through phone and email and book your aircraft once you have confirmed a time that your instructor can meet with you.

In general, it is always a good idea to work with multiple instructors. The instructor-student relationship requires that both the instructor and the student get along! Different personalities mesh... differently!

What to expect

Flying planes costs money. Scholarships exist to help. In general, expect to spend $3,000 to $4,000 to earn a Private Pilot license with a Glider rating at Mile High Gliding, assuming you are starting from scratch and take your checkride near the minimum experience requirements.

In general, frequency of flying greatly impacts the rate at which you will learn and develop proficiency. Students have much greater success if they can fly a few flights on at least two days of the week rather than fly one or two flights only one day out of the month. Intensive courses can also satisfy the need to obtain a glider rating or add-on rating for those with other ratings when the student is only in town for a week or so at a time.
