Majestic, silent, awesome are all words to describe the beauty and fun experienced with a flight in a glider.
This is your chance to fly a glider. After meeting your qualified instructor and briefing on the flight ahead it climb aboard and strap in.
Your glider will be hooked up to a tug aircraft or attached to a winch - ready for launch!
Once the winch or tug has got you to height your instructor will pull the release handle and you are then gliding for real. Your instructor will demonstrate the controls before you take control and search around the skies for the odd thermal to keep you up longer.
Floating through the skies in virtual silence, gliding is the ultimate in relaxed flying. Soon it will be time to join back at the airfield by floating down for a landing.
