Nephi to Grand Canyon in a Glider - Is it Possible?

category: crosscountry
Duration: 00:29:08
This gliding flight was a dream come true for me as I have been wanting to try flying it for over 10 years. The distance from Nephi to the Grand Canyon is 240 miles each way! Crazy to think a glider can fly there and back from Nephi without an engine and only taking a 1600' tow to get started. I am flying an ASW-27B 15 meter sailplane with the wings filled with 300 pounds of water ballast. To see the GPS trace of this flight, please go to:

Thanks so much for watching! Bruno - B4
