Soaring an engine-less plane
We soard over Mount Zoar while visiting Elmira NY, where we enjoyed gliding that August day - the thermals were perfect for a high flight! No sound, just the beauty of the land below! The price is reasonable - and the engineless plane was fun - exciting - especially the take-off - right off a plateau! The flight lasted over an hour - and at one point, the controls were in my own hands!
This is highly recommended!
Elmira is a good place for a one night stayover while travelling along Highway 17 in western New York State. The place has a couple of hotels, restaurants and a mall. Whatever you might need on the road, it's there: gas stations, bookstores, Wall-Mart...
Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want to live there but compared to other lost rural areas this is a well equiped one.
