Try Gliding

We are a friendly and expert bunch of glider pilots who soar over the Vale of Belvoir and Rutland Water. If you'd like to experience silent flight, buy a voucher or come and watch. Flying a sail plane is not unlike skippering a yacht, you feel the air moving and use your skills to climb in those invisible thermals. Flying under a clear canopy gives the feeling of getting your head under the clouds. Our experienced instructors can take you for a single flight over the beautiful Vale of Belvoir or teach you how to fly solo. To try silent flight, call 01476 860 385
