At Banbury Gliding Club, you can experience the sheer beauty and pleasure of silent flight. Our Gliding Flight Experiences make an excellent gift for any occasion – or simply a once-in-a-lifetime experience!


Perhaps you are interested in learning to fly and want to try it out first. If this is you, signup for an experience flight and let us know you think you might want to learn to fly. 


If you loved your experience flight and you want to Learn to Fly we have just the package for you. What’s more we will credit £100 towards your Learn to Fly package. 

This is a challenge that you can do

After release from the tug aircraft, the instructor will, if you wish, show you the effects of the controls on the glider’s path, and you may take control under their guidance.


In favourable conditions, the instructor may be able to guide the glider into rising air and you may climb in the ‘thermal’ up to the bottom of the clouds – giving you longer to take in the stunning Northamptonshire countryside.

Once closer to the ground, the instructor will explain how he is setting up for the approach and landing, for which you, in the front, have a grandstand view, bringing your gliding flight experience to a close. 


The Flight Experience makes an ideal present, particularly for Christmas, Birthdays, Mother’s Day & Father’s Day, as well as a taster for those wishing to experience flight or try something new.

All of our instructors are fully qualified British Gliding Association instructors and are also volunteers. They are fully passionate about this activity and love sharing their enthusiasm with our guests.
