Gliding Trial Lessons & Experiences

Make a dream come true with the gift of a lifetime through a gliding trial lesson with Banbury Gliding Club, easily accessed from London, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Bicester, Oxford and beyond!

Most people have a secret desire to fly; the sheer beauty and pleasure of silent flight can be experienced with us here at Banbury Gliding Club. Our gliding trial lessons are an ideal gift for any occasion - more than just a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We have a range of packages available, to suit every budget and experience:

Bronze & Silver Gliding Trial Lessons

A Bronze Gliding Experience (£75.00) is a beautiful yet thrilling gliding trial lesson with one of our instructors; experience the joys of silent flight. Get a flight with a tow up to 2,000 feet in a two seat glider and take the controls yourself.

Alternatively, a Silver Gliding Experience (£135.00) gets yourself longer in the air by taking two aero tows up to 2,000 feet with one of our instructors - resulting in you getting a longer opportunity for you to soak up the views, but more importantly, be the pilot!
