Catch the Updrafst And See Lake Oroville And Table Mountain From 1 Mile High
Table Mountain Aviation operates a glider program offering rides piloted by veteran pilots most Saturday. The flights take off from Oroville Airport where the glider is pulled aloft by a tow plane to as high as 5,200 feet, released typically over Oroville Dam. From there the glider will seek updrafts known as thermals, staying aloft for approximately 35 minutes or more, giving the pilot and his passenger spectacular views of the lake, surrounding mountains, as well as the valley. Glider rides are priced from $99 to $159, and flight instruction are also available for the enthusiast.. Additional information can be obtained by calling Garry Lee @(530) 519-1400 or checking out their web–TMAGlider.com. $50 deposit is required at the time of reservation to secure appointment time.
