Personalised Air Experience Flights commence with your pre-flight briefing.  Areas covered include safety, how gliders fly (no, they dont need wind!), flight planning, gliding weather and how to control a glider. You will be surprised at just how easy it is!  After landing you will be given a full debriefing on the flight. Any questions that you may have will be answered and recommendations for future training will be made if you think that you may like to follow up on gliding in the future.
Prices start from $195 for an introductory training flight which will last at least 30 minutes and reach a height of at least 3500 feet above the ground.
An extended Air Experience Flight of at least 45 minutes duration to a height of at least 4500′ above the ground is available for just $245. One hour flights are $285. Longer flights are also available on request for specific training purposes. If you have had some previous flying training, talk to us about tailored training packages.

“I haven’t stopped thinking about the flight. Its funny, it struck me today that I was up there at such a great height but I wasn’t bothered by it at all and I can’t wait to do it again. I am still trying to get my head around actually having been in control of a glider myself – wow!”  Sharyn

“Being able to control what’s keeping you flying in the air with such little touch was surprising.” Claire 16
