Photos | Torrey Pines Gliderport | San Diego

The Torrey Pines Gliderport is a city-owned private-use glider airport located 11 miles northwest of the San Diego CBD on the Pacific coast. It was established as a soaring site in 1930 and is the home to hang gliding, paragliding, radio-controlled model sailplanes, and full-scale man-carrying sailplanes. It is considered by glider enthusiasts of all types to be the "Kitty Hawk of the West." Click here to see our Torrey Pines Gliderport photos and click here to see all our photo albums.
