The wintery darkness is coming to an end and there have been some great flights recently. We are all looking forward to many more of these as soon as these exams are out of the way. Keep your ears open for upcoming trips and weekends.
Gliders or sailplanes are aircraft with wide, fixed wings. Thanks to rising air, a glider with one or two pilots can silently soar for hours, play with clouds and travel long distances, out-climbing the strongest birds. Gliding is a safe and affordable way to fly, both competitively and for fun.
