This Aerotowed flight is where your glider will be towed behind our Tug Aircraft to a height of 3,000ft **. Once at height your instructor will release the tow and you will begin soaring on the wind. During your flight your instructor will show you how the primary controls work and then give you an opportunity to find out for yourself. Should you not wish to take the controls, then just enjoy your flight with spectacular views of the South Downs and the Sussex Weald 

The duration of your flight will depend on the weather conditions prevailing at the time. Your flight time will be typically between 25 and 35 minutes but this cannot be guaranteed. On a thermic day your flight may be extended


** The altitude attained on the day will be determined by prevailing weather conditions such as cloud base height, your instructor will tell you what can be attained during the pre-flight briefing.
