Flying Experience over Devon
Enjoy this light aircraft flight experience with a difference. With our amazing Motor-gliding flight experience over Devon and Somerset, you’ll take off in an aeroplane and soar like a glider! In other words, two planes in one!
You’ll fly in a motor-glider, which is a cross between a glider and a normal light aircraft. It looks a lot like a normal aeroplane, however with the longer wings it enables you to turn the engine off and treat it exactly like a glider. It’s a lot quieter without that noisy engine!
During your flight you’ll enjoy a double dose of excitement, starting with taking off as you would in a normal light aircraft, and then glide around sightseeing over the gorgeous Jurassic Coast and classic seaside towns of Lyme Regis and Exmouth, before making your way back down to the ground.
If you’re a little nervous on the day, it’s fine to ask your instructor to keep the engine on. Either way, you’ll learn to fly the aircraft and have a chance to look at the local Devonshire landmarks. If you live locally, you could even fly over your house!
