What happens on the day:
You will be briefed by your instructor and then it’s out to the airfield. Your introduction to gliding will often include helping out with various tasks associated with gliding – keeping the log, preparing to launch gliders and such as you wait your turn to fly. Gliding is very much a team effort and this is why it is such a sociable sport. You will then be able to take your 15-30 minute Aerotow flight or your two Winch Launch Gilder flights of 7-10 minutes each (depending on location and subject to weather conditions). This silent and graceful way to fly is what many people do to enjoy seeing the world from a different point of view.
