Experience the thrill of motorless flight over the beautiful Tennessee countryside and ridges. Admire the Hiwassee River from thousands of feet in the air as you go up like a bird in a warm thermal. On some days you can fly the ridgeline at awesome speeds. Other times you can take hold of the controls with your pilot and feel what it is like to fly a glider through the various air currents that sustain free flight. These are all the joys of soaring at the Chilhowee Gliderport.
