Can't Afford Flying Lessons? Try Glider Lessons!

If this poor economy has put a crimp in your plans as far as learning how to fly a plane, why not try glider lessons instead. (Or sailplane lessons, whatever you want to call it!)

Lessons are much more inexpensive, and you still get that wonderful feeling of freedom and being in charge of your own destiny.

And below is a video from 1930, which extolled gliding.... at 5 minutes 12 seconds, hear a famous aviatrix of the time, Ruth Elder, and her enthusiasm for the glider.
