Your "gliding experience" will include:
You will have a ground briefing of what you can expect from the launch and the flight, and what controls you may be offered to try in the air (with supervision from the instructor in the 2-seater glider).
A ground briefing on the fitting of the parachute you will wear (we use them as cushions - not many of us have ever come across them being used as parachutes, so don't worry. However they are properly serviced and re-packed).
If conditions permit you will be given a 'soaring' flight of 15 - 20 minutes in our dual control K13 glider or, if not, two with shorter flight times of 5 - 10 minutes duration. It all depends on the weather.
Please note: There is no minimum age however minimum weight is 6 stone / 84 lb / 35kg, maximum weight is 16 stone / 225 lb / 102kg (we will weigh you if you are near the limit for safety reasons), maximum height is 6' 2" / 188cm.
