Learn to Glide Package
250  BUY NOW
Recently introduced at the Scottish Gliding Centre, the 'Learn to Glide' package is a fantastic way to experience how a gliding club operates with all the benifits of full membership for an introductory period of three months - saving over 35 on the first year's membership.

The package includes,

  • 3 months membership starting from the day of your first flight
  • 220 (non-refundable) credited to your flying account equivalent to,
    • 25five minute flights with winch launches, or
    • 8twenty minute flights with 2000' aerotows, or
    • 7one hour soaring flights with winch launches, or
    • any combination of launches and flying time (see tariff)
  • a Welcome Pack comprising,
    • Welcome Letter giving full details on how to get the best out of your gliding at the club
    • Log Book
    • Progress Card
    • Modern Elementary Gliding Booklet
    • Members Handbook and Directory

It usually takes between 60-100 flights to go solo, so this package could send you well on your way to becoming a fully fledged glider pilot. During this time, you are likely to accumulate around 5 hours flying time; more if you have the good fortune to enjoy some lengthy soaring flights.

When your flying credit has been used up simply top-up your account to cover flying fees as they arise (see tariff). At the end of the three months you can then join the club as a full member and continue to fly, saving over 35.

The 'Learn to Glide' Package costs just 250 and you can buy one for yourself or as a present for someone else.

You can BUY ON-LINE NOW or alternatively, you can purchase by post.

WARNING - Gliding is Highly Addictive
* Under current legislation you need to be at least 14 years of age to fly solo. It is probably not worthwhile learning to fly until you are about 13 years old so that you will not get to solo level too long before you can legally fly. If you are under the age of 18 you will need your parent's permission. If you are uncertain or want to discuss things first please contact the club for further information.
