We have two 5-Day Gliding Courses available this year.

 

The dates for this voucher are:

Monday 12th August – Friday 16th August 2024

 

The courses will run from Monday morning to Friday afternoon and course students will enjoy at least 20 winch launched flights or 8 flying hours if we have good soaring conditions.

 

Each course is designed for a maximum of 4 students and utilising two fully qualified instructors and gliders.

 

You will be launched by winch in a two-seater dual control glider with a qualified instructor

The package also includes your first pilot’s log book and a student pilot manual as part of the bundle.

 

With good weather, it should be possible to make excellent progress towards your first solo flight in a glider and you will also get involved in all the ground support activities needed to get your fellow students into the air.
