Let us introduce you to this absorbing sport at some of the top clubs in the country. It's a fantastic chance to experience the excitement of powerless flight and to take in the wonderful scenery unfolding below you.

After a pre-flight briefing, you will be strapped into the glider with your instructor. The glider is attached to a winch by a cable, and in a few moments you will be airborne! Once the cable is released you will search out some thermals and then gently glide back down to earth.

When can you go?

Monday to Sunday (selected dates depending on the location), all year although April to September are the best months for flying.

How long does this activity last?

The length of the flight will vary according to conditions but will be approximately 8 - 15 minutes.
