One Day Course
Included are three 2000 foot aerotows, lunch, three months of membership and a log book - everything you need to continue learning afterwards.
You will be paired up with two other students and a qualified instructor and spend the day learning all aspects of flying and airfield operations. By the end of the day you'll be in control of the glider, flying most of the flight yourself!
You will have several flights throughout the day. Please arrive before 9:00 to check in with reception. If you arrive earlier, our club has an excellent restaurant, and the 'Billington Breakfast' is highly recommended!
You should have completed all your flying by 18:00, though depending on the weather you may finish earlier.
Additionally, you are likely to have some time where you can take phone calls or use our free Wifi to catch up on emails.
Our instructional gliders have two seats - one for you and one for your instructor
Your instructor will be allocated to you and at the most two other students
The first aerotow introduces basic handling, and lookout.
The second and third flights work to improve on your handling to develop coordinated turns, and on thermic days some thermalling.
Additionally your instructor will provide thorough briefings on what you are learning. All our instructors are gliding enthusiasts so will be happy to answer any questions you may have!
