Glider Flying at Seighford

Have you ever wanted to fly like a bird? Well, gliding is the closest you can get to realising that dream and we offer four ways for you to try it.
1. Half-day course consisting of 3 aerotow flights or an equivalent number of winch flights lasting a total of about one hour in the air.
2. Aerotow launch behind a light aircraft to over 2000’ for a flight lasting about 20 minutes.
3. Winch launch for a flight lasting about 5 minutes. Climbing steeply to about 1000 feet in 30 seconds.
4. “taster session” for groups. We can provide 10-15 of you with a flight on a Wednesday evening in the summer months.
