There’s no better way to experience the stunning scenery of North Wales than from the skies! If you choose this exciting voucher from Into the Blue, you’ll be able to soar freely on the wind with up to three winch or cable-launched flights at Clwb Gleido Gogledd Cymru near Wrexham, all for just £105!
Your lesson will begin with an introduction to the aircraft. Although, from a distance, they may look a lot like aeroplanes, gliders have one or two obvious differences. Most immediately noticeable is their wingspan – often double that of a conventional plane – which has leant them the nickname ‘sailplanes’. This impressive width makes up for the other big difference – these aircraft have no engines, but instead rely on thermal currents in the air to keep them in the sky.
In order to get up there, your glider is attached to a long length of wire, which is rapidly tightened by a powerful winch. This has the effect of catapulting you into the air, often reaching heights of over 1000 feet. Once you’re at the altitude, the giant wings come into their own.
Depending on how favourable the weather conditions are, you may be able to stay in the sky for as long as 30 minutes from a single launch, but don’t worry, if yours falls short – your voucher gets you up to three launches so you can be sure you’ll have enough time to really enjoy the sensation of quiet, engineless flying. You’ll even be able to get your hands on the controls and have a go at piloting the aircraft yourself!
