Combining the close proximity thrills usually enjoyed from the cockpit of a glider, with the powered manouverability of a small plane, this nimble dual-controlled craft offers a unique flying experience. Marvel at birds-eye views of the countryside below while the CAA qualified instructor shows off the motor glider's sustained soaring capabilities, before you take over the controls to experience the unique sensation of piloting the aircraft first-hand. The instructor even takes a photo of you in action as a memento!
