One Day Course Cost: £159.00 per day
Our one-day courses provide a good introduction to gliding. The low student to instructor ratio ensures you receive personal tailored tuition and allows you the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a member of The Gliding Centre.
We find that these intensive training sessions will help you to learn more and progress more quickly than would be possible on a normal club day.
The day consists of briefings and flying instruction covering areas such as airfield safety, effects of controls and primary gliding exercises. Throughout the day, weather permitting you can expect to fly up to four times typically experiencing both winch and aerotow launches.
“My son bought me a one day course at The Gliding Centre. I did two winch launches and two aerotows and I absolutely loved it. I’ll be joining as a member to carry on with training, as soon as I can!” Ian – 2016
Your course fee includes:
Temporary log book and Training Record
Please note that the course fee does not include accommodation, lunches or evening meals. However, accomodation is available -(contact us for details) and our on-site restaurant The Flying Pan is open on most flying days.
By the end of the day, you will understand something of how the glider flies, have experienced what it feels like to handle the controls, and know how to stay safe at all times on the airfield.
