20 Minute Glider Trial Flight - Alice Springs

Take to the air and experience the thrill of silent "motorless" flight with this 20 minute glider trial over the vast Tanami Desert landscape.

Highlights

  • Enjoy front seat views of the incredible Tanami desert landscape
  • Accompanied by an experienced and passionate glider pilot
  • Take the controls and fly the glider yourself once you're up in the air
  • Soar for about 20 minutes after an exhilarating winch launch

A must when visiting Alice Springs! You will be in the front seat of a two-seat glider with your instructor behind you giving you the best view.

Once you're up in the air, you will take the controls and fly the glider yourself - an experience you will never forget.

You will soar for about 20 minutes after your glider is launched into the air reaching more than 1,000 feet above ground level in just a few seconds.

This is the perfect learning experience for anyone looking to take up gliding but is also a great way just to get up in the air for grand views across the Tanami Desert landscape!

Location: Bond Springs Airstrip, just 25 km North of Alice Springs.

Best Experience Ever!!!!

I booked this excursion not knowing what to expect. I had a blast. The pilot(s), ground crew, and staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. I was given a detailed overview of what to expect during the flight and fun facts during the flight about aviation and the topography of the area. I had the time of my life during the flight and enjoyed piloting the glider. I highly recommend this excursion, it will not disappoint. Cheers!!!
