Gliding Experience in Devon

Southwest Motor Gliders

Select Option


Totally unique experience offered with this trip.
Take off and climb away using our 80hp Rotax engine and upon reaching 1 mile above sea level we will slowly reduce power and allow the engine to gently cool down. After about a minute of cooling we will stop the engine completely and become a proper glider with a glide ratio of 24 to 1. This should give us 15-20 minutes of silent engineless flight or more if we can find some thermals and go soaring with the birds.

About This Deal


Climb up to a height of one mile above the beautiful Devonshire countryside, on reaching this height we will stop the engine and peacefully glide back down to earth.
During this experience you will be able to receive some instruction from our fully qualified instructor and take control yourself if you wish.
This is a truly unique experience which only a motorglider can comfortably offer.
