EGC 'WELCOME TO GLIDING' EXPERIENCES

All EGC Welcome to Gliding Experiences have been designed to introduce you to the wonderful sport of gliding, providing time to sit back, relax and take in the views. Although EGC Welcome to Gliding Experiences are not instructional flights, you may have an opportunity to fly the glider on the two aerotow experiences. If you’d like to try some training afterwards, we would be delighted to see you return on one of our EGC Welcome Back days during which we’ll tell you more about the airfield, show you how a gliding club operates and provide an opportunity to try two further flights at subsidised membership rates.

There are four EGC Welcome to Gliding Experiences to choose from.
