Booking a flight

A trial lesson makes an ideal present for someone looking for an exciting new hobby or a one-off exhilarating experience. There are very few restrictions that would prevent someone from flying. We will send out a voucher for the lucky recipient, with details of what to expect and how to find us.

We offer a range of options to suit anyone from a thrill-seeker with gliding on their bucket list, through to the next Top Gun! Plus we offer links to other gifts that might suit an aviation enthusiast or potential glider pilot (and we get some advertising revenue from Amazon if you buy via the links).

After the Paypal payment process is complete there will be an option to complete a form with details to go on the voucher.
