Taking a glider flight at this school is going to be an exciting day out, as the airfield near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire is very active with British Airways training schools, a helicopter and two fixed wing aero clubs on site.
Indeed, you'll be taking your lesson at one of the foremost gliding clubs in the country, with a full fleet of aircraft, including several two seater trainer planes such as the K13, considered by many to be one of the best all round aircraft for learning to glide. The club has two Robins, a Piper Cub and a Piper Pawnee as tug aircraft to get you launched in the air.
With so much going on around you, your glider flight is bound to be full of excitement. As you head off being towed by one of the tug planes, keep your wits about you and you'll spot some rather fine vintage aircraft based at the same airfield - you may strike lucky and spot the Spitfire that is housed on site too!
Whether you book one, two aerotows or an introductory half day, these flights are ideal for real aviation enthusiasts, as well as those keen to 'have a go' and experience the serenity of powerless flight.
