Day Membership & Trial Lessons
Day Membership is just one of the ways you can take a trial lesson.
Taking out a day membership could not be easier. Simply turn up at Pocklington Airfield and come round to the office or the hangar. You will be directed to the launch point in use that day where you will find the Control Bus. Report there, fill in a day membership form and your name will be placed on the flying list. During the summer we fly 7 days a week and Wednesday-Sunday over winter.
You may have some time to wait if it is a very busy day, but our members will always be happy to explain all about the different types of flight that you can take. On weekends you can even get a hot drink and a snack while you wait.
If you wish to buy a trial lesson for someone else (the time of which is bookable), you can buy a gift voucher. Click here for more details on Gift Vouchers.
Day membership costs include your first flight and then you entitled to fly again on the day of your visit at much cheaper club member rates so we advise you to make the most of your visit. See our Price List for up to date costs of our 3 day membership flight options (shown below).
Before each, when it is your turn to fly, your instructor will give you a full briefing on what to expect, what will happen and of course safety. When airborne you can even take control of the glider yourself. Please note that all 3 flight options may not be available mid-week but all are usually available on weekends.
Day membership flights are designed to show you how easy it is to fly a glider and that it is simple and inexpensive to take up gliding seriously. After your flight, either ask a club member for more details or contact us if you have any questions on membership or training courses. See our price list for current costs of day membership.
We advise you and anyone accompanying you on your visit to watch our Visitor Briefing video before coming to the club to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable day.
