Why buy from us?
After your first flight you'll be hooked on this superb sport. Why? It's much more challenging than powered flight - you need a lot of skill to keep a glider airborne - knowing how to recognise lift (rising air), where to find it and how to use it. But it's also great fun - effectively you become just like a bird - you often rise up in thermals alongside birds! You will be towed into the air by a powered aircraft.

After a pre-flight briefing, you will be strapped into the glider with your instructor. The glider is attached to another aircraft which will tow you into the sky! Once the cable is released you search out some thermals and then gently glide back down to earth. Unforgettable! The length of the flight itself will vary according to weather conditions, but is likely to be around 15 to 20 minutes. At some locations you may get two winch launched flights or one soaring flight instead.

Monday to Sunday (selected dates depending on the location), all year although April to September are the best months for flying.

The length of the flight will vary according to conditions but will be approximately 10-20 minutes.

You must be at least 16 years old (under 18 years need parental consent).

This activity is not suitable if pregnant, suffer from epilepsy, fits, severe head injuries, recurrent fainting, giddiness or blackouts, high blood pressure, or heart conditions. The maximum weight is 89kg (14 stone) and maximum height 1.88m (6ft 2).

No previous flying experience is necessary.

Your tuition is on a one to one basis.

You are welcome to bring along family and friends to watch you take to the sky.

Our ethos is that your 'experience' should begin from the moment you first browse the site and we can deliver this because of:
  • - Unlike other experience companies we don't just sell you a voucher and leave you to call the supplier to book yourself. We manage your entire booking process from A - Z saving you time and money on phone calls.
  • - We have been a booking agent for track days and experience days since 2003 and have built trusted relationships with all of the venues and suppliers. The owner and manager of trackdays.co.uk have both been around since the first launch and their combined knowledge of the industry is passed down to all new members of staff.
  • - We have vetted each venue and supplier and at least one of our team will have experienced the event first hand meaning we can give you honest, non-biased advice about what you are ordering.
  • - You are able to do your entire booking online, but if you do need to call us, our average answer time on our standard rate number is 20 seconds. Even during peak times when the phones are busier, you have the option to chat with us live online or email your enquiry.
  • - Once you have booked a date, we will help to ensure that you get the tickets in time for your event and will liaise with the suppliers on your behalf should you have any enquires.
  • - All of our customers are invited to review our service and the service of the operator running the event. As a returning customer you will be eligable for a trackdays discount code to use on your next purchase.
