A gliding lesson is a great gift for your dad this Christmas, its something they will remember for the rest of their life!
To start with they’ll get a tour around the club by one of the instructors, before starting a classroom lesson to explain the basics of flight and how gliders work. They’ll then be briefed on how the airfield operates before being taken to the launch point for their flight.
Then they’ll be strapped into the aircraft, and towed into the sky by one of the tugs. When they get to 2500 feet they’ll release and then get the opportunity to fly the aircraft under the tuition of a fully qualified instructor.
For €120 you get:
- A flight to 2500 ft (lasting about 25 minutes) with a fully qualified instructor
- Trial membership for the next 3 months. This means that you can come down any weekend and fly as a club member at the regular fees of €30 per launch. Many people who take a trial flight end up becoming full members of the club, with the 3 month free membership you get to see if you’d like to progress to solo flight.
