Glider Flying 

Adrenalin junkies will relish the opportunity to fly a glider with a qualified instructor over the rugged landscape of northern England 
The Bowland Forest Glider Flying Club is set on the edge of the west Pennine moors in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire (designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), so you can learn to fly in truly dramatic surroundings! A trial lesson in a two seater trainer costs just £50.00 and the local fells offer excellent flying in most wind directions.
The club operates every Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Friday throughout the year, weather permitting.
If you are looking for something a little different to give as a gift why not give a trial lesson voucher? Vouchers are valid for 12 months and come with 8 weeks temporary club membership from the day of the flight.
