You will be in the front seat of a two-seat glider, with dual controls. Your instructor sits behind you (so you have the best view!) and you will even get to fly the glider yourself once you''re up in the air.
Weather permitting you will soar for about 20 minutes, after an exhilarating winch launch which will get you to more than 1,000 feet above ground level in just a few seconds.
Glider rides are a great way of "testing the waters" and see if you really like to become a glider pilot! It's also a great way just to experience motorless flight and take in the grand views of the desert landscape of the Tanami Desert. More often than not you'll get to see wedge tail eagles up close!
A flight will cost $225 and includes winch launch, 20 minutes flight (or two shorter launches weather permitting), and mandatory temporary membership of GFA (Gliding Federation of Australia). An experience of a lifetime not to be missed!
