The Torrey Pines Gliderport is perched on top of the bluffs at the south end of the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and just north of the Salk Institute.

For licensed pilots, the Torrey Pines Gliderport is one of the most stunning locations to fly

On clear days when the winds are right, glider pilots soar from the cliffside and return to the same area. The dirt strip, established in 1928, now hosts The Cliff Hanger Deli, a place to grab a snack while sitting on the large terrace watching pilots make their voyages; a flight school complete with a shop for equipment; an RC flying station and a private event program.

For licensed pilots, the Torrey Pines Gliderport is one of the most stunning locations to fly. For non-pilots seeking a thrill, tandem paragliding or hang gliding experiences are available. For 20 minutes, you'll soar over the Torrey Pines cliffs with a certified instructor. Reservations aren't accepted; flights are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Call that morning to determine if the wind conditions are right.
