About the experience

Gliding is one of the most graceful ways to take flight, as you'll discover when you book onto this breathtaking gliding experience, taking you up to 2000ft in the air. Sandhill Farm Airfield sits on the border where Oxfordshire meets Wiltshire, and is situated close to Swindon. The gliding club is a part of the British Gliding Association, adhering to all of their official guidelines in terms of flying and fleet maintenance, but it still has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, with around 40 regular members. In the small on-site hangar, you'll find the Piper Pawnee tug, the plane which will tow you into the air in one of two Schleicher ASK13 tandem trainer gliders. Your lesson will be conducted with a fully qualified gliding instructor, out on the club's wide grass runway which will give you and the tow plane lots of room to manoeuvre and master the basic gliding skills. And also, as you'll discover, from speaking to other members of the club, you'll get to understand more about ground duties like logging and signalling. So if you fancy flying gracefully at 2000ft, this is the experience for you!
