Take to the skies for an unforgettable flying experience, as you fly back down from a height of 3000feet! With incredible views absolutely everywhere you look, you'll have no choice but to marvel at the ground below and ahead, as you and your instructor enjoy Gravity running its course and bringing you back down to Earth at a nice gentle pace - either as a chauffeur 'driven' experience or with a hands-on effect as you take the controls yourself for a memorable flight.Your Extended Gliding Experience will begin with a welcome introduction, filling out the necessary paper-work and a safety brief with the instructor. Then, once briefed and ready to fly, you'll make your way to the launch point where the marshall will ensure you get to 3,000ft - ready to begin your fantastic descent back down to Earth! You'll enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding area, lasting for around 40mins or so. It is up to you if you'd like to take the controls yourself, or sit back and let the instructor do it all as you marvel at the picturesque view.
Gliding is available at weekends and on some weekdays from April to September.
