First Flight Experience
Take to the skies in a Glider for an amazing flight with breathtaking views over our local countryside.
Let our pilots guide you into the sky.
These flights are recommended for those who would like a one-off experience, or a taster session before deciding to learn to glide with us. You will receive an introduction to the delights and sensations of flying in a glider. A British Gliding Association qualified Introductory Flight Pilot will take you for your flight(s) after a short safety briefing.
We have two different ways of launching, Aerotow and Winch. We can discuss the launch method when you book and on the day of the flight. You can expect to spend around 20 minutes in the air, over one or two flights, depending on weather conditions and launch methods.
Once you have the voucher you can contact our office to arrange the time and date of your flight. We include 1 month’s membership of the club, so after your flight you can return and fly at our normal members’ rates.
There are no age limits on being a passenger in a glider. However you must be between 5ft (152cm) and 6ft 5 (195cm) and under 16 stone (100kg) with the minimum weight being 6.5 stone (40kg).
You must be capable of climbing into the glider and not suffer from any illness likely to cause a sudden change in your condition (such as epilepsy). Please call the office should you have any concerns or special requirements.
All flights will be from Saltby Airfield, NG33 5FE . Vouchers are valid for 12 months from date of purchase.
