Five Day Comprehensive Gliding Course

Lasham believes that low numbers mean high achievement and because of this we limit the number of pupils per instructor and glider to two. With this kind of concentrated instruction you will really make rapid progress towards your first solo.

Cost of a Five day course is £750.00.

Your course fee includes:
  • Unlimited flying (shared between the maximum of 2 on the course)
  • All your launches, ground school and tuition plus the instructor & the hire of the glider
  • Three month's membership of Lasham Gliding Society during which time you can make full use of our extensive facilities including the members' bar and restaurant
  • Additional training flights at normal member rates
  • We'll even give you a free Lasham sun hat and a gliding log book in which to record your flights.

If you do not achieve our minimum of 20 winch launches on a five day course, or 16 launches on a four day course, during your course you will be given a refund. (One aerotow equals two winch launches).

If you decide to join as a full member within three months of taking your Five Day Course there will be no entrance fee to pay.
