Three Day Gliding Course (Deposit)
Do you dream of learning to fly a glider? It can become a reality with us!
Our 3 day course gives you some intense tuition allowing you to make good progress. You will be assigned one of our BGA qualified instructors who will discuss what you would like to achieve during the three days and work with you towards it.
This 3 day course includes a dedicated tuition aircraft and instructor. You will spend your time with a BGA qualified instructor and use the winch or aerotow to launch into the sky. These busy days consist of briefings and flying instruction covering all areas of gliding, such as the effects of controls, gliding exercises and airfield safety. Along with the flying you will also have experienced what it feels like to be part of the BGC team. This is an excellent choice for those wishing to kick-start a gliding career from new, or make a swift return from time away.
Once you have completed your course we also offer a 25% discount on your first year of membership with us! The office can give you all the details that you need.
The total price for this course is £400 for adults, £350 for 18-25 year olds and £300 for under 18s. You will need to pay the remaining balance at least two weeks before the start of your course.
