On a calm, sunny day, there’s one place Rod Giles will likely be: soaring over the Creston Valley in his 2010 Quad City Challenger.

“There’s a real thrill when you’re flying around the mountains and the treetops are just off your wingtip, or when you’re flying over a ridge and it just drops away,” he says.

The retired school principal took up flying for a second time 12 years ago, more than 30 years after his first lessons in his native New Zealand. He’s since found himself comfortably seated at the stick of a Challenger, one of the more affordable ultralight aircraft on the market — and one of the best for taking in the view.
