Half Day and One Day learn to glide courses are introductory courses and provide an excellent way to explore the sport of gliding.
The courses are run by our experienced instructors and you will receive personal tuition and a series of flights during which you will have a chance to fly the glider and experience different launch methods.
Winch Launch: This is a popular launch method where the glider is winched into the air by a cable attached to the glider at the launch point and wound in by a powerful winch form the other end of the airfield. Typically heights of around 1,000 feet are achieved.
Aerotow: The aerotow launch is where the glider is towed into the air a power plane. Typically the glider releases the tow at 2,000 feet but of course, the power plane can tow the glider to much greater heights.
Prices: Half Day Course £150 Full Day Course £250
Please note that due to Covid constraints each person flying may only be accompanied by one other person.
