Take a Teton Glider Ride

April 23, 2011 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

See what I was talking about in the April AOPA Pilot article on Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Ride along during a Teton Aviation glider flight out of Driggs, Idaho. It’s available to tourists, but this was a solo flight. See places other visitors to Jackson Hole will never see. On a sad note, the video was shot in 2010 and the towplane pilot is Blake Chapman. On April 8, 2011, Chapman died in a Husky crash. This video is dedicated to him for helping thousands of tourists explore “The Grand,” the biggest peak in Grand Teton National Park.

    Alton,

    Thank you for posting this video. As I wrote with the video, this video reminds me of the last ride I took with Dad in his Husky. The day after Thanksgiving was the one clear day that week. We went up and circled the Grand at about 13,500 feet. Thankfully, I have some amazing pictures I took with my phone.

    For our readers, Scott is the son of the tow-plane pilot who flew for the video linked in this blog item. The flight was in June of 2010. His father died in 2011. The video is dedicated to Blake Chapman for helping hundreds of tourists to enjoy “The Grand” from a glider launched from Teton Aviation in Driggs, Idaho.

    the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

    Wynajem czy kupno? Taki dylemat ma wile osób, ale odpowiedź jest tak w rzeczywistości bardzo prosta
    – jeżeli stać Was na kupno, a zatem płacenie rat, lepiej jest zdecydować
    się w chwili obecnej na takie rozwiązanie, bowiem szybko ma możliwość okazać się,
    że wynajem w przeciągu paru lat będzie kosztować nieomalże
    tyle samo bądź identycznie jak kupno, a raczej płacenie
    rat. Niestety zazwyczaj popełnia się w tej kwestii błąd, jaki na szczęście
    jest do naprawienia – oby nie za późno.
