Learn to Fly
Gliding is one of the most affordable forms of recreational aviation. There are a few initial expenses such as the Gliding Australia joining fee, the Club join fee and Club membership fee (charged pro rata throughout the year).
The flight fee is made up of the aerotow fee and glider hire. These vary depending on how high you take a launch and how long you are airborne. During the training phase you can budget roughly that each flight on average will be near $100.
This is a very cost effective way to fly, in comparison power flight training is 3 or 4 times this amount. Our fully qualified instructors are all volunteers and there is no instructional fee per se. Our gliding training is very well structured and all instructors are qualified and regularly revalidated.
Intensive short courses are available on request.
