This gliding experience will make you gasp as you and your instructor glide back to earth enjoying the views of southern Victoria with only the noise of the wind in the background.
Have you always wanted to be a pilot? Take to the skies on an introductory gliding flight with a qualified instructor over Melbourne.
Gliding is one of the most popular aviation sports, 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 release height of 3000 feet. 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 wedge tail eagle!
At their discretion, your instructor may also allow you to have some "hands on" flying experience and teach you the basics of flying the glider.
You will be assigned your own personal instructor for your flight. They will guide you throughout your experience.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead contacted by the experience provider. If your experience is cancelled you will be rescheduled by the provider.
Please wear casual attire, a hat and sunglasses, plenty of sun screen and appropriate covered footwear - runners, mountain boots or walking shoes.
This experience takes place at Bacchus Marsh Airfield, VIC.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
