Our flying season is best from September through to April but some days are better than others. We prefer days when there is a light breeze and there are fluffy cumulus clouds around since they indicate the presence of up draughts (thermals) that can allow us to climb up.
We normally operate on weekends and public holidays, but can also offer flights mid week by arrangement. All flights are subject to the availability of:
- Suitable weather conditions
Generally the best time to fly is between 12:00 midday and around 3:00 pm although you can get good flights outside these times depending on the weather.
Please note that the maximum permitted glider passenger weight is 110kg.
=> Wear sensible clothing:- Shoes, trousers and long sleeved shirts are preferable, and a soft hat.
=> Don’t eat a heavy meal prior to your flight.
=> Make sure you are not dehydrated. But don’t overdo the fluid intake. Also, go before you go on your flight.
=> Definitely no drugs or alcohol before your flight.
All flights are weather dependent. Depending on the availability of updraughts to keep the glider up, our usual fight is around 30 min, but we can stay up for longer if our passenger wishes to do so and weather conditions are suitable. Without updraughts the flight time is around 8 min.
We offer the following introductory flights:
$130 A flight around the airfield. Approximately 8 minutes flight time.
