The Deal

Flights of fancy become reality with two winch-launched gliding lessons (usually £79) at Bicester Gliding Centre. Adrenaline-junkies can learn how to fly through the sky safely and confidently in the hands of a seasoned instructor. Budding pilots will get to soar above the Oxfordshire countryside for up to 20-minutes. A three-month membership (£104) is also included, which will secure use of the centre's facilities for the duration of the period.

The Merchant

Based at Bicester Airfield, the gliding centre offers tuition for aviators of all abilities with the help of British Gliding Association pilots. Lessons provide up to forty minutes in the air and heights such as 4000ft, while half-day and five-day courses cover skills in more depth. Flying packages, days out and compeitions are also arranged, and the school also helps pupils gain their National Private Pilots License for self-launching motorgliders.

Customer Reviews

We enjoyed the experience. All the staff and especially the volunteers were very friendly and caring with us. We will definitely do it again. And they offer tea and biscuits for those waiting.

The staff are so friendly and informative. Lots of them are volunteers and were amazing. As you enter the gates keep driving straight, and turn right after all the building to reach the front entrance facing the Airfield. There is a bus in the middle of the airfield with Tea/Coffee/Biscuits for spectators. We have booked two more flights for next week as it was so good, and we all now want a go.
