Overview

Experience the elegance of gliding with a sensational aerotow flight. Once airborne, use rising thermals to seamlessly glide through the clouds and soar like a bird. Start off with a detailed briefing, before hopping aboard a dual-controlled glider with a qualified instructor to take to the skies. A light aircraft tows the glider and once at an altitude of around 2,000 ft, the rope is released, setting the glider free to sweep effortlessly through the air. During the flight, take over the reins to experience the genuine thrill of flying.

In a Nutshell
  • Soar like a bird in the thermal currents
  • Get expert tuition from a qualified pilot
  • Enjoy sensational views of the countryside below
  • Take charge of the controls (at the pilot's discretion)
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    The summer flying season (around April to September) runs Monday to Friday. The winter season runs from 1 October to 30 April and during this time flights take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Participant Guidelines
    Minimum age is 14. Under 18's need written parental consent. Maximum height is 6'4''. Maximum weight is 16 stone. You can't fly if you suffer from epilepsy, fainting or certain other physical or mental disabilities - check when booking.
  • Weather
    Gliding is weather dependent. It is crucial to call the venue after 9am for a weather check before setting out. If the flight is cancelled due to the weather it will be re-booked for an alternative date or time.
  • Duration
    The length of glider flights depends entirely on the prevailing thermals (currents of warmer air that provide the lift). As a guide, your aerotow flight should last for between 12 and 20 minutes.
  • Numbers on the Day
    Briefings may be shared, but the flight is held on a one-to-one basis with the instructor.
  • Dress Code
    Dress comfortably in warm, waterproof clothes, wear a hat (no baseball caps or wide-brimmed hats please) and long trousers. Bring gloves in winter and sunglasses are recommended all year round.
  • Other Info
    The venue operates as a non-profit-making club and you may be asked to help others launch and retrieve their gliders while you wait your turn to glide.
