Let us introduce you to the wonderful sport of gliding. It's a fantastic chance to experience the excitement of powerless flight and to take in the wonderful scenery unfolding below you...

At a glance

  • Time in the air varies depending on the conditions, typically from a few minutes up to 10-15 minutes
  • Please note, the height from the winch varies between 1000ft and 1500ft
