Towed gliding is a wonderful way to see the sights of Devon from above. The lucky recipient of this £199 voucher from Into the Blue will enjoy three 15-20 minute gliding sessions over a day of training at Umberleigh airfield, learning to fly in the quietest, most serene aircraft in the world!

Gliding offers a totally different flying experience than any other aircraft. Without the distraction of engine noise and propellers distorting your view, you’ll soar silently on the slightest of thermal air currents. This lesson takes place in a towed glider, meaning that your aircraft will be pulled into the sky by a tug plane to a height of around 2000 feet, before being released to return to earth gradually.

You’ll be joined on your flights by a friendly gliding instructor, who will be eager to show the best experience possible. If you simply want to enjoy the stunning views of the North Devon coast, then sit back and relax. If you want a more hands-on experience, you’ll be welcome to have a go at the controls too!

During this experience day, you’ll not only take part in three glider flights, but you’ll also have the opportunity to get involved with the day-to-day running of the club. This may include helping to launch other gliders, as well as helping with the retrieval of landed gliders. Glider flying is above all a social activity, and with this awesome voucher you’ll quickly feel like part of the Umberleigh Gliding family!
