For fun things to do and activities on the Isle of Wight why not try gliding at Bembridge
Having taken your trial lesson why not continue with your training with us using our B.G.A qualified instructors,
We can take you through your training up to solo and beyond, Flying lessons in a glider are an exciting and rewarding alternative to lessons in a powered aircraft, and also remain one of the most cost-effective ways of learning to fly.
Gliding is arguably the most rewarding form of aviation
The same aeronautical principles and core flying skill lessons are taught, in this case by BGA-approved instructors, allowing you later to progress on to single engine aeroplanes simply and quickly, if so desired.
However, most glider pilots remain hooked by the thrill of soaring and travelling cross-country without an engine. Comparable to sailing in the air, the pilot learns to find and maintain height by using natural forces.
The flying lesson syllabus covers the initial requirements to make you into a safe and competent pilot, but it does not end there. Many glider pilots feel they are still learning with each flight, honing their soaring, navigating, and flying accuracy. nd.
