Air Experience Flights

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
- Gliders
- Instructors

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.

Hints for an Enjoyable Flight

=> 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.

Cost

For an Air Experience flight the cost is $90 plus $2.00 per minute ($150 for 30 minutes).  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.

If you want to take a self launching motor glider flight, the cost is $90 plus $2.50 per minute of flight time (30 minutes will cost $165).  The motor gliders are not dependent on updraughts to get a long flight.

Gift Certificates

We can also offer Gift certificates for $150.

This is for a 30 min Glider flight (or 2 flights if there are no thermals to keep us up).

If required, and a motor glider is available, this may be changed to a motor glider flight on the day you fly.  We can email the Gift Certificate to you to print on your high quality colour printer or post it to you for a printing and postage fee of $5.00 if you supply your postal address.

If a longer flight is required, time beyond 30 min costs $2 per min for the glider gift certificate and $2.50 per min for the motor glider. Any extra time can be paid after the completion of the flight.

Payment Options

Unfortunately, being a small club, we do not have credit card facilities. Please bring cash to pay on the day of your flight.
