Individualized instruction is available. HDSC provides highly qualified instructors
and tow plane pilots allowing you to transition into soaring flight with confidence
and safety. To become a Soaring Pilot, most beginners will need 18 to 25 dual lessons to
qualify for solo flight. Minimum age to solo is 14, and a statement is required to
certify that you have no medical problems to prevent you from piloting a
glider. Lessons may be 10 to 60 minutes long, according to your instructor’s plan
and your abilities.
