Winch Launch to 1,200ft


Winch Launch 1,200 is a flight launched by the winch to 1200 feet, which will last between 5 to 10 minutes.  The launch takes around 15 seconds and is quite exhilarating - after that the length of the flight will be determined by the weather conditions of the day.  Should you wish the instructor will allow you to take control of the glider as you glide silently looking down at the Lincolnshire Countryside.   


In addition, trial lessons include temporary membership of the Club for 3 months, during which additional flights can be taken at 'club rates', as listed on the flying fees page of our website. All flight times are approximate and subject to the weather. Vouchers are valid for 12 months from date of purchase. We fly weekends, bank holidays and on a Wednesday - subject to the weather.


Voucher packs are posted by first class mail and are typically received within 7 days of order.
