Majestic, silent, awesome are all words to describe the beauty and fun experienced with a gliding experience.

This is your chance to fly a glider. After meeting your qualified instructor and briefing on the flight ahead it climb aboard and strap in. Your glider will be hooked up to a tug aircraft and towed to 2000 feet, far better than short winch launch experiences. Watch as the tug pulls you and your instructor way up into the blue. At 2000 feet the instructor will pull the release handle and you are then gliding for real. Your instructor will demonstrate the controls before you take control and search around the skies for the odd thermal to keep you up longer. Floating through the skies in virtual silence, this is the ultimate in relaxed flying. Soon it will be time to return to the airfield by floating down for a perfect landing.

All of our gift experiences are presented in an attractive red case with "Congratulations - you are the lucky recipient of a Well Wicked experience day" written on the front. You will also get a DVD featuring many of our experiences. Experience vouchers can be personalised if required.


Single flights last between 10-30 minutes depending on weather. A full day experience consists of 6000 feet worth of flying which can be either 2 long flights or 3 normal flights. Allow 2 hours for single flight, and most of the day for full flight experience.

Other Details

All flying experiences are subject to weather conditions. It is the pilot and the operator’s final decision if the experience should take place due to inclement weather conditions.
