Experience what gliding is all about with this Extended Air Experience Flight. You can expect a 20-25 minute flight with an experienced instructor in a 2 seat sailplane. Your instructor will brief you on how gliders fly then you'll take to the skies and fly like a bird. If the weather is suitable, you will get to experience what a thermal feels like. Depending on the conditions, aerobatics may also be available.
