Imagine being catapulted into the stratosphere at high speed before floating back down to earth as gently as a feather in the breeze, and you might have some idea of what a winch-launched glider flight feels like. This exciting experience can be yours for just £115 with this gift voucher from Into The Blue.

The gliding lesson takes place at Kenley Airfield near Croydon, which has a proud and fascinating history as an RAF base stretching right back to World War 1. Nowadays the airfield is exclusively used by the only Gliding Club in Greater London, which boasts an impressive fleet and friendly and sociable atmosphere.

When you arrive, you’ll meet with your own personal instructor to go over the details of safety procedure, before climbing aboard the glider. When you and your instructor are both safely strapped in, the order will be given, and the winch line attached to the belly of the aircraft will be rapidly tightened, sending you rocketing skywards. Reaching heights of over 1000ft, the winch will be released, letting you freely glide and soar through the air for around 10 minutes before you gracefully float back to earth. And once you land, get ready to go again, because this voucher includes two launches!
