Experience the unique thrill of a motor glider flight
Like a glider with an engine
Soak in birds-eye views of Stratford-Upon-Avon
Take tips from a CCA qualified instructor
For anyone looking to get a taste of light aircraft aviation, this 30 minute motor gliding flight in Stratford-Upon-Avon is perfect. The nimble motor glider does not require an aerotow or winch launch and, although engine-powered, offers the close proximity thrills usually only experienced from the cockpit of a glider. After a pre-flight briefing, hop in and prepare for take-off. Once airborne, enjoy panoramic views of the local area while the CAA qualified instructor shows off the motor glider's sustained soaring capabilities. During the flight, take charge of the controls to experience the unique feeling of piloting an aircraft first-hand - the instructor even takes a photo of you in action as a memento!
