A trial flight is an introductory flying lesson, and a great way to find out what gliding is all
about. A 7 - 15 minute flight in one of our two seat gliders with a qualified instructor, will give
you a chance to take the controls and learn to fly the aircraft from your first flight. Your first
flight costs £25 with subsequent flights costing £16.
