The Experience

Enjoy a full day of  gliding in Essex . Your gliding experience will consist of 6 winch launches, or 3 winch launches with extended soaring flights, or a combination of both. You will have a full briefing on gliding and the theory of flight will take place before you take to the air.
Itinerary
Your flying tuition will be in one of the club's two-seater gliders with a British Gliding Association qualified instructor, who will give you a full briefing before take off.
The instructor will endeavour to give you sufficient time in the air to become acquainted with the thrill of flight and to enjoy the scenery below you. During the flight you will be instructed on the effects of the controls, and should you wish, you can take the controls and fly the glider yourself.

Vital Information

You will need to be less than 6'6" tall, and weigh less than 240 pounds. Very light pilots will be supplied with additional ballast. Visitors flying as passenger or second pilot must not have any medical condition that might lead to a difficult or dangerous situation in flight. For example, poor vision or partial physical disability could be acceptable, but severe epilepsy or pronounced psychological disorder would not be. If in doubt, please ask.

The Weather

We also suggest that you contact the Club before leaving home to confirm that we are flying because rain, high winds and poor visibility can restrict our activities

Session Length

Your experience will last the full day and you will fly two to three times. 

Numbers

Your briefing may be shared; your flight will be held on a one-to-one basis with the instructor.

Spectators

Spectators are welcome. Please check with us at point of booking as some times the club is really busy and also we operate a minimum age policy.

Dress code

Wear flat-soled shoes and bring a jumper with you in case it gets cold at higher altitudes. Bring gloves in winter and sun block and a hat in summer. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
