Launched behind a tow plane in a two-seat glider. You and your qualified instructor sitting behind you will climb to the height of 2000ft or 3000ft. Once released from the tow plane, you can sit back and enjoy an almost silent flight, with only the sound of the wind whistling around you.
After having time to take in the breathtaking views, you will be able to take the controls to have a go at yourself! Depending on the weather conditions, your instructor will try and catch a thermal or two, enabling you to reach new heights and potentially extend the duration of your flight – fingers-crossed!
More than just a gift!
All our gliding experiences include three months’ FREE membership of the club you fly at. So if you can’t wait to get back in the air, you can fly at member rates. It’s one of the cheapest forms of flight, and the gliding club will answer any questions you may have on learning to fly gliders.

We recommend you telephone the airfield before setting out to check that the weather is suitable (phone numbers are in your voucher presentation pack).
