Flying in formation behind your launch aircraft you’ll reach 3000 feet, pull the release, peel off and trim to cruising speed. You’re now experiencing the wonder of unpowered flight, banking left and right and soaking up the marvel of flying in its purest form.
Your experience starts with a meet and greet followed by a briefing so you will have a full understanding of the experience to follow. From here it is straight into the good stuff – you’ll be strapped into the passenger seat ready for take off.
A qualified flight instructor will perform the launch and release and from here you will have the opportunity to take control of the glider with the guidance of the instructor. You will be flying in one of our modern twin seat fibreglass sailplanes with dual controls so you will be in safe hands.
What to Bring
Introductory Glider flights can be arranged on most days with the exception of Tuesday and are weather dependent. We would prefer that prior bookings are made to assist our operations.
Due to the restrictive nature of the cockpit environment there is a restriction placed on size and weight above 110kgs applicable to customers wishing to fly in our gliders.
We operate from the Gawler Airfield, 1 Ward Belt Road, Ward Belt, 5118
The airfield can be difficult to locate and we are happy to provide a map by email to assist.
Adelaide Soaring Club is Adelaide's premier soaring club. Just a few minutes from Gawler, the Adelaide Soaring Club boasts flights with views of the sea, the barossa and northern Adelaide suburbs. The club has several gliding aircraft offering air experience flights or aerobatic flights.
