Trial Gliding Flight

£120.00

Discover the magic of gliding flight, enjoy the local countryside, maybe even soar with red kites. You will fly in a two-seater dual control glider with a qualified instructor and have the opportunity take the controls and fly the glider yourself – although if you prefer to sit back and enjoy the view that’s fine.

A great taster of the sport of gliding, for more fun why not add a second flight on the same day.

Description

Discover the magic of gliding flight, enjoy the local countryside, maybe even soar with red kites. You will fly in a two-seater dual control glider with a qualified instructor, being towed to 2500ft by a tow plane. Your instructor will release the tow rope and then give you the opportunity take the controls and fly the glider yourself, although if you prefer to sit back and enjoy the view that’s fine. Includes one month’s temporary membership, during which you can take extra flights at a reduced rate.

A great taster of the sport of gliding, for more fun why not add a second flight on the same day.

HEALTH
It is your responsibility to declare any medical or other conditions which would affect your fitness to fly. If in doubt, consult your doctor.
