Winch Launch Glider Flight
Add to Basket
Until you have tried gliding, it is difficult to imagine the exhilaration it provides. Soaring effortlessly and almost silently through the skies is an experience not to be missed.
Those who experience a flight for the first time often describe the experience as breathtaking. Climb into your aircraft and take to the skies to witness those panoramic views and with a little help from your instructor, you could be flying one of these dual controlled gliders.

What happens on the day?
Upon arrival at your chosen location, you will meet your instructor and receive a pre-flight briefing. This will cover all aspects of your experience and you can ask any questions you may have. You will then take to the air for this extraordinary experience.
The winch launch will take you to approximately 1,000 ft in a matter of seconds before releasing the glider from the tug so your flight can start. You can either sit back and enjoy the ride or take the controls under expert instruction to get the most out of your experience.
