Enjoy the ultimate free flying experience over North York Moors
Thirsk, North Yorkshire
If you’ve got a head for heights and the being ratcheted up to a thousand feet fills you with excitement, a gliding lesson might be just the ticket.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s you in your glider, soaring high above the North York Moors!
For panoramic views, this vantage point takes some beating. Enjoy the solitude, calm and downright eerie silence of this strange sensation as you soar through the air using only riding air currents to keep you aloft.
A qualified instructor will demonstrate the flying controls, as well as explain how the glider uses lift to stay airborne. You even get a chance to have a go yourself and really feel like a bird. Depending on the conditions your flight can be a peaceful experience or an exhilarating one as you constantly adapt to what’s around you.
But whatever happens up there, one thing is for sure: you’ll be flying high for weeks to come.
