Our Deluxe Air Experience Flight over Bacchus Marsh, with views of Melbourne, the You Yangs and Port Phillip Bay. Gliding is the perfect mix of elegant flying, gentle exhilaration and friendly atmosphere which makes for an unforgettable experience.
After an introduction and safety briefing with your qualified flight instructor you will be towed to your release height of 3000 feet. Once the required height has been reached the instructor will release the glider from the tow aircraft and the wonderful experience of "silent flight" commences. You will be soaring on the thermals in the same way as birds. In fact, with no engines to scare them away, don't be surprised if you are joined mid-flight by a local sea eagle!
At their discretion, your instructor may also allow you to have some "hands on" flying experience and teach you the basics of flying the glider.
Minimum age is 12 years old. Weight limitation applies (100kg). This experience is not suitable to pregnant women or people with heart complaints. Please wear casual attire, a hat and sunglasses, plenty of sun screen and appropriate covered footwear. Small cameras or phones are welcome.
