First flight


In response to the COVID-19 emergency we are taking measures to protect our staff, members and visitors.  We have reluctantly had to postpone all First Flights.  If you are the holder of a First Flight voucher and have already booked a day and time within the next three months we advise you to call the club office on 01588 650206 and reschedule your flight for a later date.  If you hold a voucher and have not yet booked a slot we advise that you wait until after the end of June to call when we will have a better idea when the club may get back to normal operation.  The expiry date on your voucher will be extended from 12 months from the date of purchase to 18 months.  Should the situation change we will update this page with details.

Due to the flight limitations of our gliders, there is a weight limit of 16 stones (102 kilos) and a height limit of 6’3″ (1.9m). There is no upper or lower age limit but you must be able to get into and out of the glider. If you are under 16 years old we will require a parental consent form to be signed. If in doubt please contact the office for advice.

All flying is subject to availability of aircraft, launch equipment, instructors and the weather. We offer no guarantee to be able to fly on any particular day even if previously booked, but we will always do our best to get you into the air.
