The day begins with a short introduction to the theory of gliding from an experienced flight instructor who also explains the basics of the glider.
Now you're ready to set off
After a safety briefing you take your place in the pilot's seat. Hardly any other aircraft gives you such a wonderful view. An ordinary plane pulls us up to the right height of about 1,800 metres above sea level. And then you get the whole gliding experience. You'll be so impressed by the feeling of being as free as a bird sailing over a mountain crest or a rocky crevice. Just lean back and enjoy the view. Under expert instruction, you can discover what it means to pilot a glider for yourself.
The theory block is taught with the whole group, and the flights are then conducted with three or four double seaters, depending on the size of the group. You can eat in the aerodrome restaurant or participate in on the ground activities while you are waiting for your flight.
Flights are only possible when no rain, mist, or strong winds are forecast.
The likelihood that flights will take place can be declared the day before the event.
