Trial Lesson voucher statement

Our aerotow aircraft is currently away from base for yearly maintenance.

Unfortunately this has been affected by Covid restrictions and the ability to import spare parts from overseas which means the Club does not have a date for its return.

Due to a backlog of bookings taken before lockdown occurred, the Club is unable to provide flight vouchers until further notice. All bookings in the system will be honoured as soon as the tug aircraft is available for use.

Thank you for your patience at this time.

The costs

So, how much does gliding really cost?

Once you have paid your joining fee and annual subscription you pay for your launch type and time in the air on a per minute basis.

As a raw recruit it is recommended that your first flight is and aerotow, so, you pay the aerotow fee and the time in air fee. 

Generally, your flying as a trainee will normally be 2 or 3 winch launches with many flights being relatively short, in the region of 5 minutes. Where possible flights will be longer. So, for a typical days training you pay for the 2, 3 winch launches plus your time in the air.

If conditions permit and you are able to stay in the air longer, say for 20 to 30 minutes, then it is likely that you will only have the one flight that day.

You can calculate typical costs using the price list here.
