Soaring Above All

Grounded in a rich history, the Torrey Pines Gliderport is San Diego's premiere location for free flight. This includes lessons, certifications, tandem flights, equipment sales, advanced learning, and service. We serve anyone looking to extend their horizons and participate in this exciting new life style. We seek to promote all forms of free flight, and make Southern California a destination for flight enthusiasts around the world.


We seek to raise awareness for the free flight, and raise the level of free flying skills for pilots and enthusiasts in the United States, and all over the world.

We have the ability to do this because we offer a program that is top ranked in the world, a matured professional instructor staff, a flying site which offers year round flying conditions and a high level of involvement to our students and the sport as a whole.

In addition to training, the Torrey Pines Gliderport hopes to utilize the excitement associated with the sports of Hang Gliding and Paragliding to achieve a higher level of public awareness. We can do this by organizing charitable events, special clinics, competitions, tours, and exhibit local events.


To better advance the sport of flying, Torrey Pines Gliderport believes safety is vital during instruction and execution of all flight operations, whether piloting or spectating. For that reason, our training is tailored to meet each student’s individual needs. Many of the sports we offer are easy to learn, but take a lifetime to master. In light of this, we envision a training program that continues past the initial certification stage and includes instruction for the intermediate and advanced students.

Knowledge is power, and the more knowledge and skills student attains – the safer he or she is. Because of this, potential enthusiasts will feel compelled to seek the services of Torrey Pines Gliderport with our commitment to your lifetime of education.
