For people who have no prior flying experience but are curious to learn about soaring and aviation (beyond a standard ride), we offer ‘explore aviation’ packages. These packages can take many different forms. For example, young people who are considering a career in aviation may come and fly with us for several days to see how much they like it. Others may be interested in providing a unique and memorable team-building exercise for their employees (like a ‘retreat’). We are very open to working with you to come up with a package that best meets your desires and needs, whether it be for individuals, families or groups.

To explore possibilities, please call our friendly and professional staff at 802-496-2290 or email us at soar@sugarbushsoaring.com.
