Trial Lessons and One Day Courses

When you buy a trial lesson or one day course with us we send you a voucher which can be given to the recipient. The voucher is valid for 1 year. We can post date vouchers for a birthday or Christmas etc. - just add a note to that effect on your order. Your transaction will generate at least two confirmation emails, so if you are buying a surprise gift please make sure you use an email address that won't be seen by the recipient. Vouchers are sent by first class post, usually within one working day of your order.

To book your flights please give our office a ring. We are open from Monday to Saturday (with alternate Thursdays and Saturdays off) between 10am and 3pm. Please understand that we rely on the weather and aircraft availability so sometimes we may have to postpone your flight.

When you have a trial lesson or course with us you are legally a member of the glider crew under instruction. You are not a passenger. This means that you have to comply with the law regarding alcohol for aircrew. The limit is one quarter that for driving a car, which is effectively a zero limit. You will not be able to fly if we think you have recently consumed any alcohol.

Holiday Courses

We offer discounts for early bookings which must be received before 28 February for March, April and September courses and 17th March for the remaining courses. Your discount is shown when you add the course to the basket.

The PayPal transaction authorises the whole course fee but we only take a non-refundable deposit of £70.00 at the time of your booking. The balance is due one month before the start of the course. The course price includes three months membership, a starter pack, all winch launches and soaring but excludes accommodation and meals.

We deal with cancellations on a case-by-case basis. As a general rule however, if you have to cancel your booking and we are able to sell your course to someone else, then you will receive a refund. If we are unable to fill your place then we will keep your deposit.

We try and give you six flights a day or, if the weather allows it, fewer flights of longer duration. If the weather curtails your flying then we try and make up the flying time later in the course. If that isn't possible then we will credit you with some flying time and you can come back, at a weekend perhaps, to make up the time.

Payments

Our payments are handled by PayPal so your payment details are never seen by us. You can use PayPal to pay by credit or debit card even if you don't have an account with them.

If you have any questions or would prefer to book by telephone, please contact our office.
