Ever wanted to fly your own plane?? It's time to turn your dreams into a reality at Wellington Gliding Club!

No experience? No problem! Introduce yourself, your friends and family to the epic sport of gliding as you take to the skies in a state of the art winch with your own personal expert instructor.

Of course, we'll make sure you are fully prepared and briefed before even jumping into the plane. Our safety conscious team of experts will show you the airfield and give you the entire rundown - including a full instructional briefing about the glider, its controls and basic instruments - plus you'll have the opportunity to get involved in winching activities on the airfield.

Once you feel comfortable and prepared, you'll be launched into the sky with your instructor - reaching an amazing 2,000ft in only a minute or so! As your instructor soars the winch, you'll soak up unobstructed views of the beautiful countryside below from your front row seat. When you're ready, your instructor will let you take the controls and experience the thrill of flying the plane yourself!

To top it all off, once you land you'll receive a certificate recording of your flight giving you ultimate bragging rights - quite possibly the first of many to come!
