Come and see if gliding is the sport for you in a friendly welcoming club environment!
purchase a Trial Flight
Trial flights are an excellent, inexpensive, way to experience gliding. The trial flight cost includes one flight with a qualified instructor including a ground briefing and hands on control during the flight and a three month membership of the club which allows further flights during the three months at the cost of the launch only. Trial flights are normally offered most Sundays subject to weather, airfield and aircraft availability. Other days may be possible for multiple trial flights subject to arrangement.
We offer several trial flight options:
$130 - launch to 2,000ft - about 15-20 minutes of flight time*
$160 - launch to 3,000ft - about 20-30 minutes of flight time*
$200 - launch to 4,000ft - about 30-40 minutes of flight time*
$625 - Introduction to Flight – a six (6) flight package with the first flight to 3,000ft and the balance to 2,400ft each. Total flight time of about 100-120 minutes over the six flights. Included is a “Record of Progress” that covers the first 12 elements of the Getting to Solo Pilot training syllabus. This includes Self-preparation and Aircraft Handling. Flights may be taken over the three month trial membership period. A certificate of completion is available once satisfactorily finished.
* Actual flight times will vary depending on flying conditions
