YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 2 hours. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
One of the best ways to see if you might like gliding is to have a trial lesson.
Experience involves one or two launches, by winch or aerotow depending on conditions, and at least twenty minutes flying time during which you will be introduced to the characteristics of the aeroplane and the principal controls.
You will be encouraged to take control of the plane and to feel what is like to fly it yourself. Of course you will be in a two seat trainer with an experienced instructor who will do the launch and the landing and will demonstrate the principal maneuvers
The real objective of learning to glide is to be able to mimic the birds and let nature's energy take you to far off places. Flying cross country is a real thrill and takes skill and experience
The Club uses powerful Chevrolet-engined winches to launch the gliders to 1000 ft. or more.
As our site is on a hill your actual height above the ground you are flying over will be around 2000 ft.
Temporary membership of the Club for 3 months
The site is 1450ft. above sea level so, whatever the time of year, you are advised to wear warm clothes, gloves, hat and waterproof footwear.
In summer you will also need sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat.
