A guest flight costs $95 and includes a flight briefing, 20-30 minute flight, and debriefing, all at Silent Knight’s home airport in Ames, IA.  We fly guest rides each month during the soaring season, from May through October.


No pilot’s license is required.  But there are restrictions:  The passenger weight is limited to 220 pounds and under 6’3” height.  Passengers under 18 years old will need to have a parent or guardian present at the airfield to sign a release.
