Product review: Magical day at Growland by , 16 Jun 16 5/5 Excellent "One telephone call did the job (making the booking) No problems finding the site, small cafe ect on site. The staff are first class all equipment appeared and proved to be excellent. Listening in as Ethan was briefed I was most impressed. At the time we arrived they were changing direction of takeoff Ethan was taken up in a powered glider before his actual flight so he had two experiences he tells me it was truly great. He's looking forward to his next flight to really make his day was gliding the red arrows flew onto him excellent afterwards no one rushed him. Booking again was first class would not hesitate in using yourselves again "

What's included

Txt me the key details of this experience

Gliding is a strange sport, at times unbelievably enjoyable and very rewarding. This experience offers you the chance to experience the amazing thrills, and breathtaking scenery of powerless flight.
On your first flight you will be taken up in one of the club's two seater training gliders with an experienced qualified instructor.
A tow plane will take the glider to a suitable height upon which the glider separates from the tow plane.
You then set out to learn the basics of gliding.
Weather permitting your instructor will show you how to find 'thermals', which are rising currents of warm air which gliders use to gain height.
Your flight should last around 15-30 minutes depending on the weather conditions, after which you will be given a certificate.
You also receive 2 months membership of our club enabling you to have further flights or lessons at normal member rates. Should you wish to carry on learning to fly, you will then be able to purchase a year's membership at the club, giving you access to all the club's facilities.
