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!
Each flight involves a launch to 2,000 feet above the ground and can last up to 25 minutes depending on weather conditions. The instructor will give a briefing on the ground beforehand about the glider, the flight, and what to expect. Flying from the front cockpit of our two-seater glider ensures you’ll get a birds-eye view while the instructor flies from the rear seat. The glider has full dual controls so the instructor can control everything ensuring a safe and enjoyable flight.
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.
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.
