Launched behind a tow plane in a two-seater glider, with a fully qualified instructor sitting right behind you, you’ll climb to a height of 2000ft. Once released from the tow plane, you can then sit back and enjoy almost silent flight, with only the sound of the wind whistling around you.
Depending on the weather conditions, your instructor will try and catch a thermal, which will extend the duration of your flight while you enjoy sweeping views of the countryside. You’ll then be allowed to take the controls to have a go at flying yourself!
More than just a gift!
All our gliding experiences include three months’ FREE membership of the club you fly at, so if you can’t wait to get back in the air, you can keep going back and fly at member rates. It’s one of the cheapest forms of flight, and the gliding club will answer any questions you may have on learning to fly gliders.
