What Can I Expect

At Lleweni Parc airfield near Denbigh, air experiences are all about the waves, the ridges and the thermals. We are offering various lessons and experiences in a motorised glider at his unique Welsh setting where mountains, coastline and castles are par for the course!

Choose from a 30-minute lesson, a tour taking in the castles and coast or even an aerial spectacular soaring over Snowdonia! All are operated by a motor glider, which means there's no waiting for a tow or a winch, you just launch yourself. Once airborne over this lovely corner of North Wales, the motor will be turned off and you glide.

It all starts off green, green, green everywhere...then, oh look, mountains! This airfield offers direct access to the delights of Snowdonia National Park and we highly recommend the extended Mountain Experience to get the full epic tour. If weather conditions allow, you'll soar over the summit, before heading west to the coast passing by the likes of Barmouth and Aberdovey, to continue in-land towards Dolgellau and Cadar Idris.

On the 60-minute Coast Experience, heading north out Lleweni puts you on the trail of some of Wales's many castles. You'll see the likes of Denbigh, Rhuddlan, Gwrych and Conwy castles. All utterly breathtaking from the air, as is the stunning coastline you'll follow too.

For those wanting a more hands-on air experience over Denbighshire, go for the 30-minute lesson. As soon as it's safe to do so, your pilot instructor will hand the controls to you and it'll be you flying.

This part of the world boasts some unique conditions for glider flying including ridge runs, the Snowdonia wave and incredible thermals, which is why this club exists. It's run by passionate pilots who want you to experience the wonders of gliding in such amazing conditions, with an equally amazing backdrop on a great value Denbigh air experience.

This was a birthday present which had been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic several times. C-19 restrictions notwithstanding, this was excellent fun, due mainly to the pilot and the weather - this was the "flying lesson" experience - you'll need both hands free! Some of the facilities on the ground were mid-construction (they're building a flight simulator) but this didn't detract too much as we were the only ones there on the day. Be prepared to sign away your life of course, but one of the benefits in doing so is that you become a member of the flying club for 30 days, and so if you're in the area you can go up again at considerably less cost than the experience day. If you've got a go-pro or similar and a chest or head mount this is an excellent opportunity for some aerial photos but unfortunately the review system was unable to upload a photo when I wrote this review :(
