Glider flights in a winch or aerotow launched aircraft are an amazing way to combine the exhilaration of a high-speed take-off with the calm serenity of silent, leisurely gliding. With this bargain experience voucher deal from Into the Blue, you’ll have the chance to take part in a two thrilling winch-launches with flights lasting up to around 15 minutes each at Brigstock near Corby, for just £99. Alternatively you may choose a single towed launch to around 2000ft, gliding for around 30 minutes.
You’ll climb aboard the aircraft with a highly trained glider pilot. The glider is attached to a winch-wire which is tightened at very high speed, catapulting you into the air and up to 1000ft. Or, if you choose a towed flight, the glider will be pulled skywards by a small but powerful tug plane.
After the initial rush of adrenaline, you’ll soar gently on the slightest of thermal currents and updrafts in the air, and if you wish you may have the chance to take the controls yourself.
Gliding really is a unique experience, and once you try it, you may well find yourself addicted for life!
