How to get to fly a glider....
We often get people asking us "Can I try a flight" or saying "My brother/uncle/mother/etc. has always wanted to try this - what do I do?".
What is a trial flight?
What else do I get?
As part of your introduction we offer one long or two short flights as part of your membership fee. Your membership starts with the date you take your first flight.

What should I wear?
In the autumn, winter and spring wear walking boots or leather shoes rather than cloth trainers. Do not wear really bulky anoraks. In the winter woollen jumpers will keep you nice and warm under a light, waterproof coat. In the summer wear light coloured cloths and bring suncream.
Should I bring any food?
If you wish to bring food and drink then that is fine with us. One word of caution - do NOT bring fizzy or carbonated drinks. Flying with a stomach full of cola is not recommended.
Do I have to go on my own?
All trial flights are conducted with an instructor who does most of the flying. If you wish to take control of the aircraft then you can do so when the instructor deems it to be safe.
I don't want to fly, but I'd like to visit
That's fine with us. We like having visitors.
