Overview

Spread your wings and come glide with one of our expert gliding teams, available at a number of locations across England.

You’ll get to experience the incomparable sensation of silent flight, with different locations offering different styles of gliding.

Some locations offer a winch launch, some offer a self-launching motor-glider, and others offer an aerotow.

Most sessions last for an hour, with around 15 minutes of flight time in the glider. A wonderful time spent with one of our great teams, learning all about gliding and experiencing the magic for yourself.

Lifts and thermals are your friends here, especially with motorless flying. A truly unique way to experience the skies. They’re also important in motored gliding, it’s all about catching the waves of the sky.

Our teams can’t wait to welcome you, and take you up to glide through the air! Come get your wings with this incredible gliding experience.
