After your first flight in a glider, you'll be hooked! Why? Firstly, it's much more challenging than powered flight - you need a lot of skill to keep a glider airborne, knowing how to recognise lift (rising air), where to find it and how to use it. More importantly, it's also great fun. You may even get the chance to fly alongside birds!

After a pre-flight briefing, you will be strapped in the glider with your instructor. The glider is attached to another aircraft which will tow you into the sky. Once the cable is released you search out some thermals and then gently glide back down to earth. At some locations you may get two winch launched flights or one soaring flight instead.
