Lasham Aerodrome in Hampshire is the largest, most well-equipped gliding centre in the UK. If you want to experience the thrill of glider flying lessons, this is the place to do it! If you choose this very reasonably priced voucher from Into The Blue, you’ll enjoy two towed glider launches, each allowing for up to around 20 minutes of glorious, silent soaring.
When you arrive at the airfield, positioned between Alton and Basingstoke, you’ll be immediately struck by the size of the operation. Dedicated to gliding since 1950, this site boasts over 200 gliders and is frequently host to international competitions. The facilities are fantastic, and with a team of experienced and passionate glider pilot instructors, you’ll immediately feel welcome.
your flight will take place in a two-seater glider, where you and your personal instructor will get strapped in while the final preparations to the aircraft take place. Once the towline is attached, a powerful tug plane will take off, pulling you skywards to a height of around 2000 feet.
When the moment arrives and the towline is detached, you’ll soar free on the wind. The glider makes use of its formidable wingspan to catch the smallest of currents, allowing you to stay airborne for as long as possible. Your instructor will demonstrate all of the controls, then you’ll be invited to have a go at controlling the plane yourself!
This experience voucher is a truly wonderful way to get off the ground, making a perfect gift for anyone who likes to try new things and see the world from a different angle.
