If you are thinking about taking up gliding and are looking for a taster flight to see if you really like it - this could be for you.
The launch will be by our modern powerful winch, and as the glider levels out at the top of the climb you will hear and feel the instructor releasing the cable, as your flight over the beautiful Essex countryside begins. If time permits,during the flight you will be instructed on the effects of the controls, and should you wish you can take the controls and fly the glider yourself.
Upon your return to the airfield, your instructor will fly a circuit around the landing area and increase the airspeed for landing. You will see the landing area approaching ahead and feel a gentle bump as the glider touches down.
