Due to the complications and logistical difficulties generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Fly Sun Valley has greatly reduced tandem operations. We plan to still offer flights part time, only on weekends, (Saturdays and Sundays and occasionally Fridays) for the 2020 summer season with substantially decreased availability. We apologize for any inconvenience, but circumstances have forced this temporary adaptation. Contact us via email or phone for details and availability.
We invite you to join our thousands of happy co-pilots
Our team of expert tandem pilots/instructors are prepared to introduce you to an unique aerial experience. There is no better way to enjoy the remarkable beauty of the Sun Valley area. We invite you to join the thousands that have safely flown with us. Launching is easy as we stride a few steps and our glider smoothly lifts into the air — there is no “jumping off” any mountain cliff. We encourage you to bring a camera to capture all the aerial fun. Our pilots also have “GoPro” cameras and are ready to record this wonderful experience and the fantastic mountain scenery of Idaho.
People of all ages are welcome... Individuals aged 3 to 93 have flown with us.

We offer flights daily throughout the summer season, weather permitting. There are several flight times to choose from that are scheduled each day in the morning and late afternoon. (Approximate meeting times are: 7:15am, 9am & 6pm. Reservations are required.) The whole experience from start to finish requires about 1 1/2 - 2 hours and up to 3 hours in the evening flight time. During the early morning, (7:15) and evening times, (6pm) we access the mountain via our company 4x4. At 9am we are obligated to use the SVC gondola, (participants are responsible for gondola passes). Digital picture and video packages are available. Athletic shoes, (hiking boots or sneakers) and long pants are required. We also recommend a light or mid-weight jacket and sunglasses.
Flights are offered almost daily throughout the winter ski season, weather permitting. During the winter season we operate during the approximate hours that ski lifts are functioning, (9am-4pm). Common meetings times are; 9am, 11am,1pm and 2:30pm (Reservations are required.) The whole experience from start to finish takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. We access the mountain via the SVC gondola and ski lifts, (participants are responsible for passes). If one is skiing that day, that pass obviously works. Day passes for “foot traffic”, (going up on the lifts without skis), are also available. Dress warm. Winter hiking/soft shell snowboarding boots work well with appropriate winter ski attire.
When reserving a time we will need the names of the participants, their estimated weights, phone number for a contact person and credit card info to hold the reservation. (Payment is processed in the landing area after the flights are completed. Participants can pay together or separately. Checks, cash and credit cards are accepted)
