This voucher can be redeemed for a glider flying start by booking online or over the phone. Ideal for purchasing as a gift.

The glider flying start includes 2x trial lesson flights, for a combined flight time of up to 40 minutes. This allows much more time at the controls, and is a great way of starting your journey to become a glider pilot! Each flight will be an aerotow to 2500ft, with a qualified instructor in one of our 2-seat training gliders. Each flight will usually last around 20 minutes and will be taken consecutively.

You will have an excellent view of the Hampshire countyside, and be able to see local towns such as Alton and Basingstoke. On a good day you can see the South Coast, Isle of Wight, and even the taller skyscrapers in London.

Voucher includes a 1-month temporary membership to Lasham, during which time you can return and fly at members' rates, from as little as £17 per flight.

Your flying start gift voucher includes:
  • 2 flights, each launched behind a tow-plane to 2500ft.
  • 1 month membership, starting from the day of your trial lesson.
  • Waiver of membership joining fee (usually £76.00), provided you join within your trial membership period.
  • Trial lesson certificate.

After completing your paperwork with our office team, your instructor will guide you onto the airfield and to the glider you will be flying. They will run through the safety procedures and answer any questions you may have. Your instructor will familiarise you with the controls and instruments that are in the glider.

Once you are both in and ready to go, you will be launched behind one of our 'tug' aircraft up to 2500ft where the tow rope will be released. At this point, if you wish, your instructor will invite you to take the controls, and guide you through flying the glider. Your instructor has a duplicate set of controls so can ensure your safety at all times.
