Coming from a fighter flying background I know how important it is, as a pilot, to know what your glider can & can't do, how far you can push it and how to recognise & recover from situations you may encounter during your XC & Acro flying. This is the course that will truly make you comfortable under your wing and give you real confidence in your ability to handle your glider well - your First Solo Flight.

Simulation Of Incidents In Flight

Duration: 4 Days

You will learn about your glider's behaviour and how to give correct inputs in different unstable situations. It’s a progression for solo pilots on their way to becoming Advanced pilots.

The course will be tailored to your individual needs and experience and the manoeuvre will be introduced progressively. The four-day course will give you plenty of time to learn from other pilots and their flights, as well as your own.
