Introductory Gliding Flight
Flying in formation behind your launch aircraft you reach 3,000 feet, pull the release, peel off and trim to cruising speed. Experience the wonder of un-powered flight, learning how to control the aircraft, banking left and right, during this introductory gliding flight. This is flying in its purest form.
Your Introductory Gliding Flight will begin with introductions with your qualified flight instructor and a few safety techniques.
Your qualified flight instructor will seat you in one of our modern two-seater fiberglass sailplanes (Grob G103) with dual controls and once you are settled your introductory gliding flight will begin.
The flight time is dependent on prevailing weather conditions and usually lasts about 15 minutes. In this time you will have an opportunity to fly the aircraft under the supervision of your instructor.
If weather conditions allow and you wish to stay airborne for longer, please negotiate this with your instructor. The extra time will be charged at club rates and will need to be paid for after landing.
This is an amazing experience that you will never forget!
