The closest you can get to falling with style, gliding allows you to experience silent flight – soar through the sky and smoothly glide over the treetops, experience gliding in the Avon Valley, Perth.
Ever wondered what it’s like to fly silently over the landscape like a bird? This glider flight in Western Australia’s Heartland region could see you circling over the Avon Valley in the same thermal air currents as the local wedge-tailed eagles.
This graceful method of travel will see you sat comfortably in a fully-enclosed cockpit, perfectly positioned to enjoy fantastic views of the world below. Your pilot will be sat in the seat behind you, with complete control of the glider. You can sit back and let your pilot do the work, or you can begin learning some of the basics of flying yourself! And there’s no need to worry about not hearing instructions, as no engine means you can have a normal conversation without the need to shout.
Flights typically last for around 20-30 minutes before touching you back down, but this may vary depending on the weather conditions on the day.

Thoroughly enjoyed it - the team at the airfield were great too.
