The project has completed stage 1 and proven that it is possible to soar in the Polar Vortex and climb into the stratosphere without an engine.

If you want to display your glider, it will have to be trailered in due to runway construction at MHV! We apologize for this inconvenience, but the airport is in the process of upgrading runways, which will make improvements that is good for all pilots!

Threshold of Runway 8-26 is temporarily relocated 1950 feet to the east, which will last no longer than eight weeks. This has shortened the length of the runway to approximately 5,100-feet

 

All guests are reminded to observe flightline safety rules, including: no touching propellers, no running, no pets, and keep a watchful eye for taxiing aircraft! Thanks!
