Gliding gives you the perfect opportunity to stretch your wings and experience silent flight 1000 metres above the ground. With picture perfect views of the Avon Valley, a gliding flight is the perfect way to get a bird's eye view of the patchwork world below!
Have you ever wondered what its like to soar over the Earth, circling in the thermal air currents just like an eagle? A glider flight in Western Australias Heartland region is a unique opportunity to enter this graceful, aerial world! During the flight it is quite common to circle over the picturesque Avon Valley in the same thermals as our local wedge-tailed eagles. On the day of your gliding flight, youll meet your pilot and after entering the glider, you will be towed into the air behind one of our powerful tow-planes to a height of approximately 1000 metres and then, once your instructor releases the tow-rope, you will enter the graceful world of silent flight.
Our gliders are extremely well designed and you will be comfortably seated in a fully-enclosed cockpit with a fantastic view of the world just remember to bring your camera! Your instructor will be seated behind you with total control of the aircraft, and due to the lack of engine noise you can have a normal conversation without shouting! Just sit back and soak up the experience, take photos or video, or alternatively your instructor can begin teaching you some of the basics of flying and let you try the controls yourself. Depending on the weather conditions on the day, your flight will last between 20-30 minutes and then your instructor will gently land the glider right back at the airfield where you started. Please Note: Due to the nature of gliding, exact flight times cannot be guaranteed.
We operate every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, all year round (except Christmas Day). Flights are available from 11am until sunset. Your flight will last between 20 30 minutes depending on the flight conditions on the day. Due to the nature of gliding, exact flight times cannot be guaranteed.
