Take a Glider Flight Experience

Leave the earth behind and fly with the clouds! Discover the joy and serenity of silent flight on a glider lesson above the beautiful Leicestershire countryside. This unforgettable experience is a unique way to get airborne and definitely one for the bucket list. 

Glider Flight Experiences

After a comprehensive pre-flight safety briefing, you’ll take off with your expert BGA instructor sitting right behind you. When you feel confident, take the controls yourself or just sit back and enjoy the fabulous views before landing. Experiences are available in a motor glider, aerotow or winch.

Courses include demonstration and tuition for all the phases of flight including launch, gliding, soaring, the circuit and landing, working your way through the British Gliding Association training syllabus. Courses run April - September
