Couples Gliding Experience

Gliding for CouplesCouples’ Gliding Experience

Couples’ Gliding Experience flights must be booked in advance. Both participants must be booked for the same date and time. Upon booking you will be advised of the time you should arrive at the airfield, BUT this will not necessarily be the time you will fly. The club is often busy and Gliding Experiences may be slotted in with other flights; therefore you should be prepared to be at the club for at least an hour or so.

Gliding is very much a co-operative sport where everyone helps each other and you are welcome to join in.  Your flying tuition will be in one of the club’s two-seater gliders with a British Gliding Association qualified instructor, who will give you a full briefing before take off.

For safety reasons, all members and visitors who fly with us must meet or exceed certain minimum medical requirements, and be neither too heavy nor too light for correct ballasting of the aircraft. The majority of people will meet these requirements with ease. For full details please see Medical and Weight Issues. Terms and Conditions are available here.

A Couples Gliding Experience costs just £75 and consists of a single winch launch for each person leading to soaring flights of approximately 8 to 10 minutes each.

After completing the purchase you will receive your voucher including information on how to book in the post.

      Hi there, depending upon the time of year, and certainly in June if the weather plays ball, we can be pretty sure to give you an extended flight. Once you have booked your course online, Lyn Bone will contact you to arrange a suitable date and time. Thanks for the enquiry and we look forward to flying with you!

      Hi Jackie, unfortunately we can’t give you precise dates before you book, but we operate courses on Sat, Sun, Mon, Wed and Fri throughout the season. Once booked you can speak to Lyn Bone to agree a specific date and time.

    I understand ESGC fly on Bank Holidays in addition to their normal days of operation. Students on a Go for Gliding course have the option of spreading their flights over more than one day.
