Winch-launched gliders provide the best of both worlds – the initial rush of a high-speed launch into the sky, followed by the quiet, graceful descent as you glide back to the ground. This experience voucher lets you try it for yourself with a single launch for just £52.50 from Into the Blue.
Your taster gliding lesson takes place at Grantham Airfield in Lincolnshire. After a quick briefing, you’ll climb into the cockpit with your BGA approved instructor and fasten in for the exciting launch. To get you into the sky, the powerful winch will accelerate the aircraft from 0 to 60mph in just 3 seconds, catapulting you up as high as 1000ft!
After the first big adrenaline rush, you’ll gracefully soar through the sky at low altitude before making your way back down to the ground. With no engine noise, glider flying is remarkably quiet – you’ll easily be able to talk to your instructor without a headset. The whole experience is dependant on conditions on the day, but usually lasts between 5 – 15 minutes. If there is time, you will be able to take control of the glider for some hands-one experience too.
