Torrey Pines Gliderport La Jolla San Diego California

One Sunday afternoon free, I came with my cameras to take videos sequences and photographs. Torrey Pines Gliderport is one of the prettiest, most picturesque, and scenic places in San Diego. We can get amazing amazing views of the La Jolla coastline to the left and North County to the right. We are literally on top of a cliff overlooking Black’s Beach under you and La Jolla Shores directly south.

The Torrey Pines Gliderport (FAA LID: CA84) is a city-owned private-use glider airport located 11 nautical miles (20 km) northwest of the central business district of San Diego, a city in San Diego County, California, United States.

The Torrey Pines cliffs have featured soaring aircraft since the 1930s with many famous aviators earning their wings on the strong ocean breezes.

Many aviation pioneers flew at Torrey Pines. Charles A. Lindbergh flew along the coast from Mt. Soledad to Del Mar in a Bowlus sailplane on February 24, 1930. Woody Brown was the first to launch from the top of the Torrey Pines cliff and come back to land at the same place when he did so in 1936. Other notables include Hawley Bowlus, Bud Perl, Bill Beuby, John Robinson, Dick Essery, Bill Ivans, Helen Dick, Richard Johnson, and Paul MacCready.



This place is just so incredible. This is a place for to take photographs, this is so gorgeous when the sky is filled with gliders and then you have the unbelievable views of the ocean and cliffs on top of it. This is Breathtaking ! There’s even a little cafe up there so you can go up and have a little lunch while you watch the paragliders and hang gliders take off !
