About the experience

This exclusive members' club offers exhilarating gliding experiences at Warwickshire's Bidford Airfield, nestled in the picturesque Vale of Evesham. Conveniently accessible from Birmingham, Worcester, Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Stratford-upon-Avon, this is the ultimate destination for Midlands thrill-seekers. Imagine the breathtaking vistas from the glider, stretching from the Severn Estuary to the Cotswold Hills. The sheer beauty and tranquillity will leave you spellbound, regardless of how far your gaze reaches. At this Evesham club, you can embark on a Mile-high glider experience, where you'll be towed and released at an astounding 5280ft above the ground. Yes, that's a whole mile! Discover the remarkable phenomenon of finding 'lift' in specific air conditions, allowing you to ascend beyond the release point without any motorised power onboard. The gliders in Warwickshire feature a tandem configuration, providing an unobstructed view of the River Avon, Bidford, and Evesham below. Seize the best seat in the house with the student in the front cockpit and the pilot instructor behind. Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of this active member-operated gliding club at Warwickshire's Bidford Airfield, where exceptional flying conditions and awe-inspiring views await.
