Highlights

  • Learn to fly a glider at 4000ft in the air
  • Experience the surreal feeling of silent flight
  • Enjoy stunning aerial views of the Great Dividing Range

Experience the unique thrill and tranquility of a silent gliding flight at 4000ft in the air. You will have the opportunity to 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!

What's Included?

  • 4000ft introductory glider flight
  • Experienced pilot

Your introductory flight begins with a safety briefing and practical demonstration before you jump in the front seat of the glider, with your instructor seated behind you. After a smooth take-off, the glider will begin climbing to 4000 feet and you will experience the unique thrill and tranquillity of silent flight that only gliding can provide. 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 eager, you can fly the glider hands-on and take control after the basics are demonstrated to you in the air. As your flight experience comes to a close, you will gently glide to a smooth and short landing, jumping out of the glider with a huge smile on your face!
