About the experience

Experience “God’s own country” from the air as you never have before, on this 2000ft Gliding Flight above North Yorkshire! Run by Burn Gliding Club, who are based at a former WWII Bomber Command airfield near Selby, this location is perhaps one of the best in this part of the UK to experience gliding from; firstly because of its scenic surroundings that look stunning from up in the air. Secondly, its positioning means that during the summer months, what the gliding team refers to as the “Pennine wave” creates optimum thermals from which to get airborne and stay there for longer. And even in the wintertime, there’s still the same thermal effect coming from nearby power stations in Drax, Eggborough and Ferrybridge - so even when it’s cold and frosty, there’s still enjoyable gliding fun to be had. Following your brief welcome on arrival, you’ll be assigned to one of the club’s fleet of twin seater gliders. After being shown the various elements of the glider, you and an expert instructor from the club will climb into the cockpit for your flight. Released by the aerotow at 2000 ft, you can expect to be up in the air for approximately 15 minutes, as you enjoy flying in this most peaceful and majestic of aircraft - no noisy engines, just the sound of the wind whistling around you as you feel weightless in the air above the White Rose county!
