Gliders are the ultimate way to fly without an engine. You will experience the total tranquillity of soaring and circling on the thermals, drifting silently on the wind in a dual control glider. After a short briefing from your British Gliding Association instructor, you’ll be able to climb aboard your glider for an Aerotow or Two Winch launches and begin your unforgettable flight. You'll take the controls during your flight, under expert instruction and if you get hooked, this first lesson counts towards a Glider Pilot's certificate.

What's Included?

  • Introduction to gliding, safety and controls
  • One-to-one training from a BGA licensed instructor
  • One Aerotow flight of 15 - 30 minutes or two Winch launch flight of 7-10 minutes each (according to weather conditions)
  • Experience gift pack including personalised voucher and message card
  • Cancellation indemnity

What happens on the day?

You will be briefed by your instructor and then it’s out to the airfield. Your introduction to gliding will often include helping out with various tasks associated with gliding – keeping the log, preparing to launch gliders and such as you wait your turn to fly. Gliding is very much a team effort and this is why it is such a sociable sport. You will then be able to take your 15-30 minute Aerotow flight or your two Winch Launch Gilder flights of 7-10 minutes each (depending on location and subject to weather conditions). This silent and graceful way to fly is what many people do to enjoy seeing the world from a different point of view.

"Excellent day gliding"

My aerotow glider flight was absolutely perfect. The Kent Gliding Club
is friendly and well organised and I was lucky with the weather - it was perfect. It was easy to stay up for an hour is gentle thermals.
