Take to the air in a glider

Yorkshire Gliding Club

Thirsk, North Yorkshire

Get a jaw-dropping, birds-eye view of the stunning Yorkshire countryside from a glider. Embark on your first flight experience, soaring to more than 2,000 feet.

Now for the good bit – after being shown how to do it by a qualified instructor, you get to take over the controls and fly the glider yourself.

If you want to immortalise your day in the air, you can take a camera up with you and the instructor will give you tips on how to get the best snaps while up in flight.

Take that experience to further heights with a mile-high flight that reaches 5,280ft or 1,609m above sea level and offers amazing views over the Vale Of York.

The Yorkshire Gliding Club also has a state-of-the-art gliding simulator suite and offers flying courses, corporate days and junior gliding experiences.

Annual memberships are available too … with a number of flights rolled into the price so you know in advance that you’ll be getting a good deal throughout the year.

Visitors are welcome into the Clubhouse which boasts a cafe and overnight accommodation should you or your group wish to stay on site. Bring your tent – there are camping pitches too.
