FAQ

What is Mr. Bill's Safety Record?
Mr. Bills has been operating for 43 years at the same location. Gliders are very safe and are engine-less, so there is no engine fire hazards. All passengers are seated in the safest and strongest part of the glider. They are proud of their perfect safety record with no problems at all.
How do gliders get into the air?
Gliders are towed into the air by another aircraft with a 200 foot polyethylene braided water ski rope.
