Where the "Two Winch Launches" option is taken, both launches must be taken by the same person
Note 2 - Equivalent Flying
We do our level best to provide the best experience possible and we operate an equivalent flying policy which gives us the flexibility to cope with adverse weather conditions or unforeseen events: One aerotow to 2,000ft is equivalent to three winch launches or 15 minutes in the motor glider One aerotow to 3,000ft is equivalent to four winch launches or 20 minutes in the motor glider For gliding courses, 15 minutes of soaring in an unpowered glider is equivalent to one winch launch. I.e. a launch and a 20 minute soaring flight is the equivalent of two launches. If we really can’t operate we will, of course, offer a credit for an alternative booking.
