What's included

  • Participants will get a full presentation and safety briefing before settling into the glider and preparing for take off. Once airborne, the instructor will demonstrate the controls before giving you the chance to take over. The dual controlled 2-seater gliders can reach heights of up to 1400 feet and hit speeds of 70mph in a matter of seconds.
  • After landing, be prepared to do it all again as the glider is pushed back into position and launched for the second time.
  • Winch launching involves the glider being pulled into the air by 2000 feet of steel cable. Bicester Airfield was established in 1917 and retains authentic hangars and a pre-WWII bomb store -- all English Heritage listed buildings
