Go Gliding Day – Learn to fly a Glider in The Cotswolds

The sport of Gliding is one of the most exhilarating ways of getting in the air. The sensation of floating in the air in almost silence is an unforgettable experience. It is also one of the most cost effective ways of learning to fly.

Our "Go Gliding Day" provides the student with a training glider and instructor for a day. This allows for some one-on-one personal tuition that can reflect the abilities of the student. It also provides the opportunity for the student to immerse themselves in club operations and get a feel for what it’s like to be a member. We find that by having intensive training sessions, students will learn much more from the instructor than would be possible through normal club attendance. By the end of the day you can expect to be doing most of the flying yourself.

For a beginner to gliding the ‘Introduction to Gliding’ Course immerses you in the gliding world. The day consists of briefings and flying instruction covering areas such as airfield safety, effects of controls and primary gliding exercises. The student can expect 6 winch launches or equivalent in soaring time as well as being involved in all aspects of the ground operation. The Introduction to Gliding course provides the student with the opportunity to understand more about gliding and the instructor is available to brief on any desired areas and answer the student’s questions.

Your trip will start with a briefing by one of our fully qualified flying instructors who will explain all of the safety aspects of your flights and also introduce you to the aircraft and make sure you are comfortable. The glider will then be winch launched to a height of up to 2000 feet from where you really can get a bird's eye view of the Cotswolds; an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Flight duration will be dependent on weather conditions on the day. Please note that we book up to two people at a time on the course but this does not impact on your allocation of flying.

The voucher supplied is valid for twelve months from purchase and is non-refundable. The courses are run on Saturday's, weather permitting. Full instructions for booking will be supplied with your voucher.

The flight will take place at Cotswold Gliding Club at Aston Down Airfield between Stroud and Cirencester, Gloucestershire and will be supervised by a fully qualified flying instructor. Cotswold Gliding Club is a member of the British Gliding Association. The voucher is not transferable to any other gliding club. Note that there are size and weight restrictions – please see our website or call our office on 01285 760415 for full details.

“Learning how to fly a glider gave me a sense of freedom and fulfillment like nothing else – I wish I’d done it years ago!” - a satisfied course pupil.
