London Gliding Club

five days

Are you sick of boring holidays? Has skiing lost its zing? Can't take another hot summers day queuing in a crowded airport for a delayed flight?

A five day course is the perfect remedy. This is the turbo charged route to being a fully fledged glider pilot. With on-site accommodation and a bar, why not bring a friend and have a proper break from the world?

Offered as an Intensive course you will be paired up with a full time resident instructor who will ensure that every nuance of your flying is understood and the perfect training program is provided.

Our instructors are very experienced and can coach you on specific elements of flying as well - including cross country flying. It's not unusual for a new pilot to be almost solo by the end of their intensive course!

Five day gliding courses can be broken down into 2 or 3 day courses, and like our vouchers, include free membership for three months.

Prices from £485, please contact the office on 01582 663419 for more details
