Gliding Courses

Website design by the Shepherds

Fly in a dual controlled training glider with a BGA qualified instructor who will tailor the flight according to your wishes. Choose one or two winch launches or an aerotow up to 3,000ft

Explanatory notes which clarify pricing rules that may not be immediately obvious.

Gliding courses are great fun and a good way to accelerate the training process and bring that magical first solo closer. You will take on average 6 winch launches or the equivalent each day.

Possibly less than you might think!

Our prices are highly competitive, flexible and represent very good value for money. Members can fly for as little as £25 per hour 

How much does it cost to fly at Shenington?
