Event Details

Gliding Day at Cambridge Gliding Centre


Fly a Glider Plane at Cambridge Gliding Club!

Children only

Ages: 12+

Your children can enjoy a flight in a Glider Plane with an experienced pilot AND have the opportunity to fly it themselves too! 

This fantastic opportunity is part of a Youth Scheme with Honourable Company of Air Pilots that has been running for young people for 20 years! 

Gliding involves flying an unpowered aircraft that is launched either by winch or aero-tow behind a powered aircraft. Using the natural currents of rising air, gliders can remain in the airborne for hours and travel hundreds of kilometres.

Young people attending this activity will enjoy a flight lasting around 20 mins in a two seat aircraft. They can sit back and enjoy the views OR take the controls under supervision of the instructor.

We will have a presentation from an experienced Pilot to give all the details and answer any questions a month prior to the activity. (Monday July 1st) 


WHEN: Wednesday 31st July 6.30AM-6.30PM

WHERE: Pick up and drop off at Nova New Opportunities, 2 Thorpe Close W10 5XL

Age: 12+
