A Gliding Taster Session – Back by Popular Demand – Saturday 28th June, 6.00pm for 6.30pm

Yes, you too can fly like a bird! Enjoy the thrill of soaring over the Vale of York at the controls of a modern two-seater training glider with a BGA qualified gliding instructor when you join us for a taster gliding session. Flying will start at 6.30pm and will continue until everyone has had a flight. There may be the opportunity to pay for a second flight if time allows at a cost of around £15. Even at the height of summer an airfield can be cool and exposed so please wear warm loose-fitting clothing. Jeans, jumpers and trainers are best and remember to bring a lightweight waterproof jacket too. If the weather is poor the flying will be rearranged for another date.  After flying the clubhouse and bar will be open – alcohol will not be served prior to flying. Please bring a picnic which we can enjoy outside if it is warm enough or in the clubhouse if it is too cold. The gliders used, impose a weight limit of 102kg (16st 0lbs) and a height limit of 199cm (6ft 3in). You will be asked to make a medical declaration that you are fit to fly – the requirements are basically the same as those to drive a car.
