Typical Flying Costs of Learning to Glide

There are many costs associated with learning to fly a Glider, and each of these costs are influenced by one or more conditions on the day. You will see from Price List that pilots under 21 years old are charged at half the rate for our older pilots (except for Aerotoed Launches).

In general older pilots tend to need more tuition to attain their goals. To give you an indication of the costs involved  please use the calculator below:-

  • Select the appropriate age group

  • Use either the default numbers for both Winch and Aerotowing or select a greater number for either type of launch

  • Press the Get Cost button to reveal the approximate cost of learning.

  • Press the Reset button to return to the default settings.
