At CGC we mainly fly unpowered gliders. However, you may find that it is cheaper (and much more fun) to learn to fly gliders and then convert to powered aircraft rather than start straight off in powered aircraft. CGC can do conversion from gliders to a National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) in our motor glider. For a powered licence you need a minimum of 40 hours at about £200 per hour to get a licence. Gliding can count towards 10 hours of this time at a much cheaper rate.
- What time are the AM and PM training slots?
- I have done powered flying/hang gliding/paragliding does that count towards Gliding?
