You'll never see a more beautiful view of Tennessee than from up there. Not in a noisy helicopter or airplane... but in a motorless glider. For about three decades the Eagleville soaring club has attracted a breed of aviators who are hooked on what you'd call a natural high. What's more, as I discovered, they often take along passengers.
Eagleville Soaring is open year-round on Saturday???s and Sunday???s from 10 a.m. until dark weather permitting. Rides cost $125. Gift certificates are available for purchase. To schedule a ride or buy a gift certificate, send us an email at [email protected] - See more at: http://eaglevillesoaring.org/sailplane-rides#sthash.lIzBho8p.dpuf
