There are some physical restrictions on who can fly in a glider:

  • Pilot must weigh between 50kg and 100kg (limits are based on the ‘balance’ of the glider not the ‘strength’)

  • Pilot must be between 1.5m and 1.9m in height (in order to reach the controls and close the canopy)

  • Minimum age 12yrs (no maximum)

  • Physically able to get in and out of a glider (similar to getting in/out a bath)

  • Medically fit to fly (if pregnant, please consult your GP.)

If in doubt contact us.
