Glider flight.


The most common way to launch a glider is to tow it behind a powered aircraft, and when the glider pilot has reached the ideal altitude, he releases the rope to let the glider fly free. Once it is launched, the sailplane can remain airborne for hours, but most of the companies proposing to try this experience make it last around 20 or 30 minutes. It is an ideal way to enjoy the landscapes of Catalonia.
