Welcome introduction and safety briefing The glider flights are aerotows, with the release at around 2000ft Your experienced instructor will teach you the basics of gliding Although it's just you and the glider pilot onboard during your flight, there may be a 3:1 pupil to instructor ratio throughout the day What can I expect? Dunstable gliding club is a fantastically placed club to take a glider flight, within very easy reach of London and the Home Counties. Sitting pretty on the Dunstable Downs, once you're airborne and soaring through the skies, you'll be able to see for miles and miles, rather like your own personal Google Earth experience! As you climb aboard the glider for your flight, your pilot instructor will put you at ease before the tug plane starts to pull you into the air. Once airborne and released, (at around 2000ft) you'll be amazed at the view down below - you'll see roads you never knew existed and watch the scenery change before your eyes as you glide over the Dunstable Downs. It has to be said, this is a very well equipped and friendly glider club, where all members share a common interest - their passion for gliding. Indeed, it's very much a co-operative sport, with several pairs of hands needed to launch and land a glider, so you'll see how all the comes together to make for a convivial, fun and very active Dunstable gliding group that are only too pleased to welcome new members (and worth noting that you get three months' membership to the club with these experiences). Once back down on terra firma after your breathtaking glider flight experience over Dunstable, you'll have a debrief with the pilot and time to take those all-important photos. When is it available?
