Where do I start

A convenient way to start gliding is to book a Trial Lesson. There are a number of ways of doing this including phoning the club office (the most convenient, though the phone is not always manned), e-mailing, or by visiting the club. Trial flight vouchers can be purchased online (see the Trial Flight Vouchers page for more details).

A Trial Flight includes:
• Aerotow launch
• Hire of the glider
• Instruction1
• Club membership2 for 3 months, from the date of the flight
• Pre-flight briefing

The height for the aerotow launch depends upon the type of voucher purchased, and varies between 2,00oft and 5,280ft (1 mile altitude).

1. All instruction at Deeside Gliding Club is free of charge.
2. Club Membership provides full use of the facilities, and charges at normal club rates (see the Price List page for more details). As an example, subsequent flights on the same day will be charged at normal club rates.
