Experience the beauty and thrill of flying (and none of the usual brain-aching engine noise) with a 15-30 minute flying lesson in a towed glider. After climbing aboard and getting comfy, you’ll be pulled into the skies by a powerful tug-plane. Once you reach an altitude of around 2000ft, the tug will release the towline, allowing you to soar free on the wind with a CAA certified glider pilot accompanying you in your dual-controlled aircraft.
Gliders make use of an extended wing span to catch powerful thermal currents in the air, mimicking the flight of a hunting bird of prey. This makes for a truly unique flying experience, and with up to half an hour in the air you’ll have plenty of time to appreciate the calm and see stunning aerial views.
If you feel confident, you’ll also have the chance to take the controls and practice some simple manouevres – and all flights count towards a pilots licence if you decide to keep learning. Amazingly affordable at just £89, this experience voucher from BuyAGift makes a perfect present for anyone who likes to try something new and different!
