Gliding experience
One day course
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.

This experience will last a total of approx. 1 day. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
