  • Description

    Do you know someone that has always wanted to be a pilot? Send them on an deluxe gliding flight with a qualified instructor over Melbourne. This deluxe package flies from a higher altitude of 4,000ft, providing more flight time.

    Gliding is one of Australia's fastest growing activities, and it's easy to see why. The perfect mix of elegant flying, gentle exhilaration and friendly atmosphere at the gliding club makes for an unforgettable experience.

    After an introduction with your qualified flight instructor you will be towed to your chosen release height by one of our tow aircraft. Once the required height has been reached the instructor will release the glider from the tow aircraft and the wonderful experience of "silent flight" commences.

    You will be soaring on the thermals in the same way as birds. In fact, with no engines to scare them away, don't be surprised if you are joined mid-flight by a local Sea Eagle! At his/her discretion, the instructor may also allow you to have some "hands on" flying experience and teach you the basics of flying the glider.

    This adventure flight is an excellent gift for any thrill seeker, with the option for time at the controls for someone who has always wanted to be a pilot.

    It was a great glider flight, the pilot was terrific and I even had a go at the controls. Directions at the airfield to the site where the gliders were operating, could have been improved. Other wise a great day all round.

    All of the people involved at the gliding club were great and contributed in making it a great experience. Bob my pilot provided a lot of information about what and why we doing the activities during the flight.

    As a fellow aviator, I was proud to find that this clubs member's passion for their sport and love of flying in general is clearly evident. The team was thoroughly professional in their approach and, although highly safety oriented, kept their humour intact as well. It was a great morning outing.

    I wasn't feeling well the morning of my flight. If I was well, I believe it would have been a much more fun experience.

    Glider experience was fantastic. Mark, my instructor, was excellent, explained everything in detail and allowed me to take the controls for almost the entire flight. Will definitely go again and may even join the club!!!
