Looking to make history while you’re on the Outer Banks? Fly a reproduction of the Wright Brothers’ 1902 Glider! This replica was built by the Wright Experience and is one of a few in existence. It’s also the only one of its kind available for the public to fly. The 1902 Wright Glider replica is museum quality and allows participants to experience exactly what the Wright Brothers felt as they prepared for their historic flight of the first powered plane in 1903. Your 5 flights over the Dunes will be just like the Wright Brothers. And you’ll be one of the few in the world to ever fly this glider just as the Wright Brothers did over the same sands over 100 years ago!
A normal flight will be 5-15 ft off the ground and about 50 yards in distance. After the flights, we encourage you to visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial and walk the hallowed ground where the Wrights perfected their flying machine in 1902 and changed the world with their powered flights in 1903.
