The course includes pre and post flight briefings so that you can get the most from your time in the air. Subject to weather, availability and your own preferences, you will take up to 3 aerotows or 6 winch launches or a combination of both to provide between 45 and 60 minutes in the air.
As gliding depends on mutual help, you will be in a team of people including fellow course members and full club members.
The course fee of £180 includes all tuition, launching, flying and 3 months membership of the Club, during which time you can return for further flights at inclusive rates of £50 or £20 for aerotow and winch launches respectively.
|1/2 Day Course|
A Gift Voucher buys a hands-on instructional flight in a two-seater glider with dual controls and membership of the Club for 3 months from the date of the first flight.
We offer 2 types of Gift Voucher:
Both of these vouchers also include 3 months membership of the Club, during which time you can return for further flights at inclusive rates of £50 or £20 for aerotow and winch launches respectively.
Where the club is unable to carry out aerotow launches on any particular date then the voucher holder will be offered the alternative of winch launch (in this case a 2nd flight will be offered where the 1st flight is less than 10 minutes duration)
The flight will last anything up to about 30 minutes depending on weather conditions on the day.
Subsequent flights may be taken on the day or during the 3 months membership. These will be charged at rates shown above and are payable on the day.
An information pack (the Club, gliding, how to find us etc.) is sent with the Gift Voucher.
Virtually anyone who is able to learn to drive a car can learn to fly a glider. Gliders are limited in the height and weight of people they can carry – no more than 1.95m (6ft 5in) and 102kg (16 stones).
The Club reserve the right not to fly anyone outside these limits.
Vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of issue. If the voucher is for a birthday or special occasion please let us know the date and we will issue the voucher from that date.
