Learn to fly with a 5 day intensive gliding course at Norfolk Gliding Club – the fastest way to progress your aviation adventure!
Your professional, fully qualified British Gliding Association instructor will tailor each days flying to your specific individual experience and aims. So whether you are a complete novice, an experienced pilot trying gliding for the first time or already part way through learning to fly gliders, you will progress safely through the BGA syllabus of ground school and airborne instruction towards your first solo flight. All the training can be credited towards your Sailplane Pilots Licence. If you’ve already been solo, your instructor will take you through further training towards your Sailplane Pilots Licence and help develop your soaring and cross country skills.
During the week, you can expect to fly in both sailplanes (gliders) and self-launch sailplanes. This provides the flexibility to develop particular flying skills by using the most appropriate aircraft. The focus will always be on safe, hands-on flying, backed up with clear explanations of the how and why through briefings and debriefings, providing a sound knowledge base.
Expect to be very involved in all the airfield activities to make the course work efficiently, with as much flying as time and weather permits, all included within the one fee.
We offer winch and aerotow courses. Both courses are very similar in terms of content, the main difference is the method of launch and amount of time airborne.
