Gliding across Marion County

Rick Spitler, from Wichita, does power para gliding all over the state of Kansas, but on Saturday, he was in Marion County. Spitler and his family were camping at Marion Reservoir so he took the opportunity to head over to the Hillsboro airfield to take off in his power para glider. He sailed over to the reservoir where he found his family’s camping spot, enjoyed sailing around the area and then headed back to the Hillsboro airfield to land. Spitler says he enjoys the hobby of para gliding and likes to find all kinds of places to do it.
