Cross Country Soaring, Inc

No Risk.


After you have selected your ride below and entered your credit card information (processed by Paypal, but you can use credit or debit cards if you look closely!), please send me an e-mail with the name of the recipient as you would like it to appear on the certificate. If you would like me to mail it directly to the recipient, please include their address.

They will love this gift. I'd like to offer a money-back guarantee saying this will be the most fun they have had in many, many, years. Judging by the ride reactions we get, it would be a pretty safe bet. But alas, that could get complicated. If you change your mind after buying though, I will guarantee your pre-ride money back for any reason whatsoever. I'll hold on to a $5 printing/handling/postage fee, and promptly refund the rest. Deal? Deal.


Click here to purchase a Gift Certificate for the 3000ft ride. This ride lasts about 20 minutes. It's a nice introduction to the elements of soaring, and is high enough for an excursion over the neighboring town of Faribault. The ride customer can take the stick for a short time if they like and see what it's like to fly like a bird.   $175.00


Click here to purchase a Gift Certificate for the 4000ft ride. This ride lasts about 30 minutes. It's a little higher and a little longer than the 3000ft ride, with a little nicer view of the farms and fields of southern Minnesota. There's a bit more time for fun maneuvers, sightseeing, or instruction.  $210.00


Click here to purchase a Gift Certificate for the Mile High ride (5280ft). This ride lasts about 40 minutes. It's hard to describe the view from a mile up, but it is gorgeous. We can cruise miles in any direction from this altitude and there's lots of time for you to take the controls and soar if you are so inclined. This is the most popular. $245.00


Use this button to enter random amounts. You will be able to leave a note for me so I know what you bought.  If it is something I'll need to mail, leave the address, too, unless it is the same as the billing address on your credit card/Paypal account. Thanks!
