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
