*** STOP PRESS *** Apologies to anyone trying to contact us on Sunday 30th May, Wings and Wheels Day, for PPR or to book flights. We will try to contact everyone who left messages individually as soon as possible. A full post on the record breaking day and the amount raised for HFT will appear on this site shortly.
Fly with one of our qualified Introductory Flight Pilots and experience the joy of silent gliding flight.
You will take off from Bidford Airfield, and as you climb higher you will be able to take in the wonderful views of the Cotswold Hills. You’ll see the river Avon weaving its way beneath you past the the town of Bidford and on to Evesham. On clear days you can even see the River Severn estuary away in the distance.
If you want, take a Trial Lesson and your qualified instructor will demonstrate the controls and give you the opportunity to fly the glider yourself. Follow this link to find out more about getting started.
ENJOY THE THRILL OF SILENT FLIGHT
Our friendly pilots will launch with you in one of our dual controlled gliders behind a powerful tow-plane. At your chosen height, we will release and fly free and silently over the Vale of Evesham.
If you wish, your instructor will demonstrate the controls and you can feel how the glider is flown. If conditions allow, we will climb in rising air and enjoy soaring flight too. After a suitable time, you and your glider will gently glide back to land at Bidford. As you sit in the front seat, you will have a grandstand view. It’s a perfect gift too!
