Gliding and soaring refer to motor-less flight.  Gliding started with aircraft like our modern hang gliders, however the safest and most accessible form today is the sailplane. The sailplane comes in two-seat and single seat versions.  They are strongly built using 'space-age' technology and easy to fly.  After launch, they float through the sky sinking about one third the rate of a typical powered aircraft when its engine is idling.  When gliding, from release at two thousand feet, a typical flight lasts fifteen minutes.

Here comes the magic!  Glider pilots can use rising air currents to stay aloft.  Sometimes a glider flight can last all day!  For a quick introduction look at the video on the left.  If your hooked enjoy what 'The Aviators' show discovered about gliding in the video to the right.
