Usually flying lessons mean the constant buzz of an engine or splutter of a propeller, but with these wonderfully relaxing gliding lessons, all you’ll hear is the wind whistling past the aircraft. This experience is perfect for any aviation enthusiast with a yearning to try something a little different. You’ll receive expert one to one tuition from an experienced instructor throughout your four lessons, which will last between five and ten minutes, starting with a safety briefing and introduction to the glider on arrival. Then it’s time for take off for your first taste of gliding. Your pilot will show you the ropes before handing control to you in these specially modified dual control aircraft. Flying at over 1000 feet, you’ll have a perfect view of the beautiful Surrey countryside below. When you have completed your four lessons, you’ll be able to continue your tuition with a 1 month temporary membership of the club, which will give you special gliding lesson rates.
