Product review: Perfect birthday present by , 25 Aug 14 5/5 Excellent "Very easy - just a phone call to the flying club to set a date. Was able to arrange one within a couple of weeks of giving the present which was great. Don't have a sat nav but airfield was clearly indicated on the map and was easy to find even though it's off the beaten track. Staff very friendly and helpful. Small delay to the time agreed as the first tow plane had a fault and they had to ready a second plane at short notice. However staff kept us fully informed as to the reason and were very competent and professional.
Club members were safety conscious at all times and gave my husband a very clear briefing before the gliding flight. Weather was perfect - lots of thermals rising and clear views over the beautiful Kent countryside. Pilot was very welcoming and friendly. My husband enjoyed every minute of it and would have stayed in the air all day if possible. Said it was the perfect birthday present!Club has a small cafe and toilet facilities. We were free to take as many photos as we wanted and were welcome to stay and get a cup of coffee. "

Trial flight over the North Downs

Squids Gate, Challock, Ashford, Kent TN25 4DR Trial flight over the North Downs

Gliding experience

Most of us will at sometime have looked up on a summer's day and seen graceful turn of a sailplane high in the sky. The fascination of silent flight, seeking thermals and climbing up to the clouds is something you'll never forget.
