What is a Glider?

A glider is an aircraft that is heavier than air and is supported during flight by the reaction of air against its lifting surfaces. Unlike other aircraft, it does not depend on an engine to stay in flight so they rely fully on 4 forces: lift, drag, weight and thrust; however gliders do not generate thrust as they have no engine. Gliders must generate lift to oppose its weight. The motion of lift generates drag. When the drag is unopposed, this is when the Glider starts to glide back down to the ground as there is nothing powering it forward.

What to Expect on your Gliding Experience

Gliding Experiences are a fantastic way of seeing the world below you without the annoying drone of an engine, whilst still being in the cockpit so you still feel the part. On the day of your Gliding Experience, you can expect a full safety briefing to ensure that you are up to date with all of the safety precautions for your flight. You will be taught how to fly the glider by a fully trained professional, so if you feel confident enough, you can take to the controls and fly the aircraft yourself!

Gliding experiences are relaxing yet thrilling at the same time and perfect for anyone who loves aviation or who wants to experience something a little different.
