Taster Day 2015 is Saturday 04th July!!
Just come in on the day and take a winch-launched glider trial flight with one of Wolds Gliding Club’s instructors for £25. You can take the controls over the Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds in one of our modern two-seater dual-controlled aircraft.
We will be flying from dawn to dusk. Last year our first visitor flew at 05.30 am but we will be up earlier than that, weather permitting!
Learn about Pocklington airfield’s history as a WWII bomber base. Find out about gliding and gliders, see our other aircraft and try our simulator. And you could be flying with Club members who have won National or even World Championships.
We’ll explain how and why it is cheaper to learn to fly a glider solo than it is to get a driving licence and you might meet our fourteen year-old old members who can fly a glider solo but still have to wait years to get behind a car steering wheel!
Refreshments will be available all day in our modern clubhouse and there is ample parking on site at the Airfield just off the A1079 York-Hull road at Pocklington.
Taster Day 2015 will be supporting the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by donating £1 for every visitor flight.
