Soar through the sky in a motorised glider and take advantage of the streams of warm rising air and the wonders of aerodynamic engineering to help keep you airborne with this amazing 40 Minute Motor Gliding Flight.

Gliding is an air sport where pilots take to the sky in lightweight aircrafts and glide through the air using natural forces in the atmosphere known as thermals, which are updrafts of warm air, to remain in flight. With the assistance of a motor, you can ensure that you will stay airborne for longer.

This introduction to gliding will really get you into the sport. Following a short safety briefing and pre-flight checks with an instructor, you will both taxi out to the runway and head for the sky. Once you have reached an adequate altitude the engine can be switched off allowing you to experience a quiet and serene glide back down to the airfield. During this time you will be shown how to fly the aircraft.

Gliding is a great experience which offers an unrivalled bird’s eye view of the landscape below and is sure to leave you craving for more air based adventures.
