Enjoy the unique experience of a silent gliding flight from 4,000 ft. Fly the glider yourself and bask in the wonderful Victorian countryside below you. This is an experience so serene, you'll be wishing that you never have to land the glider.

You’ll start your gliding adventure with your friendly instructor. After some safety instructions and demonstrations you'll take the front seat of your sleek glider. Your instructor will be seated behind you.

This is the time to ask all those questions! After a smooth take off, the glider is released at 4,000 feet to enjoy the unique thrill and tranquillity of silent flight that only gliding can provide. You will take in the magnificent views of the Great Dividing Range (and its stunning mountains including Mt. Buffalo and Mt. Buller) to the south and east and the great plains to the north.

Then, when it's safe to do so and if you are keen, you can fly the glider "hands-on" and take control after we demonstrate the basics to you in the air. And don't worry: your instructor is always sitting behind you and will not let you do anything unsafe. As the gliding experience comes to a close, you will gently glide to a smooth and short landing, ready to jump off the glider with a huge smile in your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome The Gliding Flight was a gift for my husband. He absolutely loved the flight which lasted approx 30 minutes. He loved that he was actually able to take the controls and fly the glider for part of the flight. All the staff at Benalla Gliding Club were very friendly and helpful and made the day very enjoyable for my husband and for me watching from the ground. They also made safety the priority. We would recommend this flight to anyone. 11 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Experience Ever Firstly the staff that greeted us were very friendly and i was wrapped to be flying with one of them Roger. He was very professional, made me feel very relaxed and I am now keen to actually consider my options to fly more often. I have already recommended it to many of my friends and will continue to do so. Thank you to the Victorian Gliding School and Redballoon for the best birthday gift ever. 28 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic gliding experience Tony and the crew provided a flight at Benalla that I will never forget. I was able to take control when gliding and Tony found some thermals to take the glider higher. Thanks for a great time. 14 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gliding at Benalla From the pre-flight briefing to take of flying and eventual landing this was a fabulous experience. Pilot was very capable but gave me the maximum opportunity to have a fly (he was in the back ready to take control. A really enjoyable experience - scenery is great - fabulous view of Benalla and surrounds. I will be back for another flight! 7 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic A great experience all round. Pilot was very easy to talk to and made me feel quite comfortable. The loop that we did was an experience to remember. The pilot let me take the conrols for most of the time. The aircraft was surprisingly easy to control. The landing was quite exciting. 13 March 2013
