Gliding Trial Lesson
Consist of either two winch launches, or a single winch launch leading to a soaring flight of between 15 and 20 minutes. Time in the air is very dependent on the time of year and the weather conditions at the time of the flight. A full three calendar months’ temporary club membership is included in the price of the Trial Lesson, so you may return at a later date if you wish, and fly at club rates. However, if you are seriously thinking about taking up gliding or want more than a brief “taster”, then a Day Course is recommended.
Trial Lessons must be booked in advance. Bookings are available from April to October, normally on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. 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 Trial Lessons may be slotted in with other flights; therefore you should be prepared to be at the club for at least two or three hours. If there is likely to be any further delay you will be kept informed of the situation.
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.Buy Now
