WHERE DO I START?

Try Gliding

The best way to experience what gliding is all about is to try an Air Experience Flight (AEF). During this introductory flight, you’ll experience a flight in one of our two-seater training aircraft with a fully qualified instructor. The AEF will last approximately 20 minutes, during which time you’ll get to have a go on the controls, and gain height in a thermal (weather dependant). Should you be interested in going further with your training, your instructor will explain the process and how you can learn to fly solo and beyond. AEF prices start from as little as $160.
