1. All gliding flights are dependent on the weather and flight lengths may vary due to the conditions on the day of the flight. As a general guideline, we are unable to fly when it is raining, when there is low cloud or when there are particularly strong winds. If the weather looks doubtful you are recommended to confirm with the club on the day of the flight.

 

2 .For technical reasons we are unable to fly people of less than 7 stone (45kgs), or heavier then 16 stone (102kg). Anyone taller than 6’4″ (1.93m) should make arrangements to sit in a glider and check that they fit prior to purchasing a voucher.

 

3. The minimum age for gliding lessons is 14, and youngsters under the age of 18 must have written permission of a parent or guardian.   There is no maximum age, but if the person using the voucher will be 80 years of age or over by the date of the flight, the club needs to be given at least 2 weeks notice so that the permission of our insurance company can be obtained.

 

4. Gliding vouchers are non-refundable and have a validity of one year from date of purchase.

 

5. Under exceptional circumstances the voucher may be transferred to another user.
