Most people that join Lasham Gliding Society do so after completing either a Trial Flight, the "Glider - Flying Start" which entitles you to 1 months' temporary membership or one of the other courses that entitles you to 1 months' temporary membership. Once that expires you can take up full membership without having to pay a joining fee (saving you £72 on top of 1 months' membership).
There are 4 basic ways to continue your glider training at Lasham, all of which will involve you paying your normal flying fees of £10.00 winch launch + 57p/minute in K13 or £35.50 for an aerotow to 2000ft (+£3.70 / extra 500ft).
After joining the club your progress will be monitored through your logbook and progress card. Here are full details of the training syllabus
Online Booking System
You will also be given the login to the members area which will allow you to use the on-line booking facility. These slots can be used for pre-solo training, post-solo training and check flights. There are AM and PM slots available each day. Allocation of students to instructors for the AM slots take place at 0900hrs and 1400hrs for the PM slots.
There is also a daily flying list on the noticeboard which is for solo flying and this is for anyone who can fly Lasham gliders solo without daily checks.
