A great way to experience the thrill of gliding is to take an Air Experience Flight at one of clubs.
Clubs normally provide either an aerotow to around 2000ft or winch launch followed by a flight of about 20-30 minutes. Costs do vary from club to club.
Air Experience Flights are your best option for taking a trial flight and seeing what it’s all about.
Gliding is an all-inclusive and very social sport attracting men and woman of all ages and walks of life. In Australia you can fly solo from the age of 15 and some pilots continue gliding into their eighties. It is never too late to learn to glide and many pilots take up the sport in their 40s, 50s or even 70s.
