About the experience

Experience one of the most peaceful forms of flying around with this Gliding experience at the Burn Gliding Club near Selby in Yorkshire. As soon as you arrive here, you’ll be surrounded by friendly and enthusiastic flyers who are passionate about getting as many people as possible to try this unique, peaceful form of flying. It won’t take long for you to realise why Gliding is so special after you’ve spent a few minutes in the air, because after initially being released from a height of 2000 or 3000ft, you’ll be surrounded by silence. Unlike other aircrafts, there is no rumbling engine noise but just the sound of the wind whirling around you. Of course, it can be made into an adventurous experience if you wish, but with this package, it’s about taking in the stunning scenery over the North Yorkshire countryside and Moors. Depending on when you fly, you may even get to experience the ‘Pennine wave', which is when summertime sunshine creates localised currents of rising thermal air which will give your glider an extra boost, making you airborne for longer. Even if you fly in the winter months, you may experience something similar due to the plumes from nearby power stations which recreate the same thermal effect. It’s safe to say that whatever time of year you end flying in, every experience will be just as peaceful and awe inspiring. In a matter of months you’ll be booking in again, as you ultimately succumb to the gliding bug.
