Ever wondered what it would be like to fly in a glider, you can discover the experience with the Cambridge Gliding Centre who offer one off trial lessons, join them for a morning or afternoon, or even make a day of it and bring the whole family. There are two ways of getting airborne, you can either be launched by a winch or towed up behind a light aircraft, both offer a fantastic experience. Once you are airborne the instructor will demonstrate the use of the controls, and show you how a glider flies and you will be encouraged to handle the controls as much as possible during the flight. Nothing can quite match the thrill of soaring silently over the countryside and literally getting a birds-eye view of Cambridgeshire and beyond.
