For many people soaring is a beautiful dream. Silently sharing a column of rising air with the eagles above the breathtaking BC Rockies in a glider, the Invermere Soaring Centre can make this dream come true!
Soar above the mountains for 45 - 60 minutes in style! This is our most popular flight. Mountain flights are true soaring flights done in the afternoon when the daytime heating creates the necessary thermals which we use to gain altitude. You can choose the medium performance IS28 or the high performance Duo Discus.
The flight with the IS28 costs $240 per person.
Add 30 minutes to flight in the Duo Discus for $70 per person.
When the soaring conditions are truly spectacular, heights of over 12000 feet can be reached. This allows us to travel deep into the mountain ranges where the higher peaks and glaciers are. These flights are not for the fain of heart, with strong thermals and fast climbs, you will enjoy approximately 1.5 hours of the most spectacular mountain views in the Duo Discus. Call ahead for an assessment of weather suitability.
$310 per person.
