Half price glider rides! Rolling back my fee this week for a glider ride ticket at Marfa Gliders. $80 is your half-price cost now to October 20 for qualified Marfa or Fort Davis adult residents.
E-mail Burt at marfagliders at AOL dot com to make an appointment to fly. (Do not go to the airport without making an appointment with me by e-mail.)
Adults only / maximum passenger weight is 225 pounds. Photo ID showing local Marfa or Fort Davis address is required. Flights for non-pilots with me, your pilot, are about 15 minutes in my FAA certified two-seat glider. Weather permitting and ride availability is limited. Visa or MasterCard or cash accepted. "Certain restrictions apply."

Well, we sure had some wonderful flights this week. Thanks to all that accepted my half-price offer. It was my way to thank the local residents who have appreciated the gliders up in the sky over our Marfa Plateau or the Davis Mountains since 1960 (since 2001 for me and Marfa Gliders.)
And in the middle of last week, the FAA presented me with the Wright Brothers Master Pilot award for 50 years of safe flying. Wow, I still think that I'm just the kid on the airport, and I hope you can experience my passion for flight someday soon.
So keep looking up . . . I'm likely silently soaring up yonder in our amazing updrafts that Marfa is famous for, and which makes us a destination for enthusiasts from around the world. Rides are available year-round, mostly on the weekends. "You know my name, look up my number" (another Beatles reference.) Burt Compton
