Gliding Flight

Product code RGF

Red Letter Days

£100.00

Description

A truly unforgettable gift experience. Gliding is perhaps the most elegant way that humans can be airborne. Start with a briefing session before climbing aboard a dual-controlled glider with an expert instructor, the glider is then towed into the air by a light aircraft. Once at a height of around 2,000 ft the rope is released, the aircraft peels away and it's time for you to soar and circle lazily in the thermal currents. Enjoy breathtaking views of the countryside unfolding from the ground below and the sky all around the craft. At the pilot's discretion (and only if you want to), take over the controls and try to manipulate the glider to experience the pure thrill of flight. Once you have your voucher you can book at any of the following locations: Buckinghamshire, Wales, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Linclonshire and Northamptonshire.

Availability: Most venues operate all year round. Weekends are often very busy, please book at least six weeks in advance. Flights are usually less frequent during winter.
Weather: Gliding is weather dependent. It is crucial to call the venue for a weather check before setting out. If the flight is cancelled because of the weather, it will be re-booked for an alternative date or time.
Duration: The length of glider flights depends entirely on the prevailing thermals (currents of warmer air that provide the lift). As a guide, your flight should last for between 12 and 20 minutes.
Numbers on the day: Briefings may be shared, the flight will be held on a one-to-one basis with the instructor.
Spectators: Spectators are welcome, but must follow safety directions whilst on-site. Please check with us at point of booking as some venues operate a minimum age policy. A camera or a pair of binoculars will come in handy.
