Soar through the sky of Illinois in a Civil Air Patrol glider. Nothing compares to the feeling of an airplane pulling you off the ground into the sky then that moment when you release from the tow and are truly free. We fly Schweizer 2-33 and Blanik L-23.

June 17-25 2022 (16 students)

Cadets 14 and older can apply for the glider section

Cadets with previous glider experience at academy check-in will be placed in the advanced glider section after your prior experience is evaluated. There is no difference in your eServices application.

All cadets will be weighted at check-in to ensure they meet weight limitations of the glider. If you are over 215lbs please contact Lt Col Bowden prior to applying

Cost- $850
