In common with many other gliding clubs belonging to the British Gliding Association, we offer members of the public the chance of experiencing the thrill of silent flight at first hand.
You will have a flight of approximately 20 minutes with an instructor in one of our two seat training aircraft. You can elect to take the controls yourself, perhaps take photographs or a video, or just experience the sensations.
Depending on the weather you might experience hill lift, soar in thermals, fly in “wave” or simply float down from an aerotow (up to about 2,500 feet). Either way it is the experience of a lifetime floating quietly and effortlessly above some of Scotland’s most spectacular countryside. From a typical aerotow you can see the local hills, the Ochils and Loch Leven. You can often see across the Forth and Tay, and sometimes as far as the Grampians.
For anyone who thinks that they might like to take up gliding, or looking for a thrilling day out, or as an unusual gift, or for the merely curious, an air experience flight is an ideal introduction to this exhilarating sport.
