Gliderport

Skylark North is a full-service glider flight school, located in the beautiful Tehachapi Valley. Phenomenal lift conditions generated by the Sierra Nevada mountains to the north, the Tehachapi Mountains to the south, and the Mojave Desert to the east make Skylark North a perfect location for gliders and sailplanes.

Soaring over the scenic Tehachapi Valley and exploring the tree-covered ridges of the Tehachapi Mountains offers a thrilling way to see the local sights. For information, call 661-822-5267 or visit www.skylarknorth.com

Spaceport

The Mojave Airport was first opened in 1935 as a small, rural airfield serving the local gold and silver mining industry. In 2004 Mojave Air and Space Port became the only private airport in the U.S. with a commercial spaceflight license.

When it comes to global "firsts" in flight, flight test, and aerospace, the Mojave Air and Space Port has been a consistent breaker of records and aerospace barriers. Learn about its rich history with a visit to Voyager Restaurant and Legacy Park, home to SpaceShipOne, The Voyager, and The Rotary Rocket Roton.
