Welcome to the Vectis Gliding  Club.  We hope that you enjoy your virtual flight through  these pages.  In fact we hope that you come and see us on the Isle of Wight and  take a real Trial Gliding Lesson.
One of the first pleasures of  glider flying is the experience of making the aircraft  respond to your wishes.  This satisfaction can be gained from controlling a  horse, car or perhaps a boat, but controlling an aircraft in a third dimension  gives an extra feeling  of excitement and satisfaction.
The  sensation of flight is  often very strange at first,  but a new view of the Earth  from 2000 feet above the ground soon overcomes these concerns as you look out  for familiar and not so familiar, landmarks.
On your  flight from Bembridge your Glider will be towed by a Piper Cub aircraft to a  height of approximately  2000 feet.
Your instructor will fly this  part of the flight so you can fully enjoy the experience and the views unfolding  through your canopy.
Once you have reached 2000 feet  your instructor will release your glider from the tow plane and you will then be able to enjoy the full experience of glider flying.  You will even have the opportunity to control the glider during your flight and  really begin to  appreciate the feeling of controlling your own  aircraft.
So - whether you live on the Isle of Wight or whether you are planning a holiday or business  trip to the Island - why not allocate some time to come and visit us at Bembridge Airport  and experience the magic of flying a  glider
