The Gliders Are Back


The annual Texas Glider Rally began on Saturday and continues through April 11. Twenty five glider pilots from around the country will bring their sailplanes to the Marfa Airport to explore thermal and mountain wave soaring. The sailplane pilots will attempt personal best and international soaring badge flights, which qualify a pilot to compete in national soaring contests. The public is invited to visit the Marfa Airport on Hwy 17 to watch the soaring activities.


Burt Compton of Marfa Gliders will coordinate glider rides and flight instruction. For more information, call 800-667-9464 or visit http://www.flygliders.com/.
