Overview

Gliding is like no other form of air travel. Soaring high above the clouds reaching heights of up to 2000ft you’ll feel like a bird, with nothing but the sound of the wind rushing past the cockpit. Although most definitely a thrill ride, it is probably the most tranquil thrill ride you’ll ever experience. On arrival at one of the nine locations available across the country, you will meet your fully qualified instructor who will run through a short safety briefing before getting you accustomed to the controls of the glider. Then it’s time for takeoff as you are hauled into the air by a powerful plane before you are detached to fly along solo. You will even have the chance to take controls yourself, should you wish. Your flight will last from between 12-20 minutes depending on the weather, as safety is of most importance

What's included?
  • Full safety briefing
  • Tutoring by a qualified instructor

Friendly, welcoming staff and a great location. Would probably not booked the flight myself - but it was such a great experience I shall arrange another flight. Tony the pilot was very patient with my rather clumsy attempts to fly the glider but it was great to try.

Great value gliding experience
31 May 2019
53 minute flight with my pilot Martin. Very informative throughout the flight on local landmarks and the finer points of flying gliders. Wormingford airfield used to be a WW2 US fighter base and has some fascinating plaques and memorabilia. All the club members were very friendly and helpful. A great afternoon and real value for money. Highly recommended!
