How much does a glider flight cost?

The cost to fly in a glider? To get an idea of what it feels like? We offer several Glider Experience flight options. These are extremely popular, and we do around 400 of them a year.  A Gliding Experience Voucher also makes a great gift. 

Experience Gliding, Trial Lessons, and Gift Vouchers

Our Gliding Experience flights can also be treated as a trial lesson if you are wondering if it is something you might want to take up.
