"Many, many thanks for yesterday's gliding, it was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely tell friends and family and encourage them to have a go. Please can you pass on my thanks to the Club members who also made my day so brilliant. I was so full of it, I took ages to go to sleep last night, just thinking of soaring up towards the clouds and those fabulous views! "
Trial lesson voucher - winch launch £50
Trial lessons are ideal for people who have not flown a glider before. The instructor will give a briefing about the instruments, check lists, controls and how the glider flies. (You can also read about this before your visit). Once you are strapped into the front seat the instructor climbs into the back seat and takes control for the launch while you sit back and enjoy the panoramic view. Winch launches are shorter than aerotow launches, but the acceleration is worth experiencing. Ever gone from 0 to 60 in three seconds ?
