Meadowlark Gliderport recently opened in Franklinton, bringing gliding to Franklin County. Owned and operated by Dr. William Via of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Dentistry, the gliders are launched from the ground using an engine-powered winch. Depending on air currents, glide times range from five minutes to forty-five minutes. Via hopes to employee a certified glider flight instructor in the near future.
