How much does it cost to learn to fly?

Gliding is much cheaper than other forms of flying and it probably much cheaper than your expect. The costs depends on how long you take to learn, and this varies from person to person. If you want price certainty you can buy a fixed price to solo package. The main costs in learning to glide are:

  • Annual Membership – the cost of joining the club
  • Launch Charge – the cost of getting the glider into the air
  • Flying Charge – a charge for your time in the air

We have discount rates for children and spouses.

A typical pre-solo training flight for an adult member would cost £18.20 made up of:

  • Winch Launch – £11
  • Flying Charge (10 minutes) – £7.20

Most people need 50 – 100 flights to complete their pre-solo training.
