A Day of Gliding

You and your guests will enjoy one of the most exhilarating experiences in the skies during this wonderful day of gliding over the beautiful Dunstable Downs.

Once in the skies you will enjoy the serene atmosphere of flying with the birds.

During the day each guest will have the opportunity to take flight twice, once as you are towed up by a light aircraft and they by the winch launch soaring to 2000 feet.  Once airborne you will have the opportunity, should you wish, to take the controls yourself and fly the glider under the expert guidance of our instructors.

Whilst your colleagues are in the air the remainder of the guests will join the ground crew actively helping in the running of the flying.

At the end of the day all guests will have three months temporary membership of the club so should they wish they can return for further instruction.
