Do you have what it takes to stay up in the air for hours gliding on nothing but the ever-changing air around you? At Southdown Gliding they’ll teach you how to read the skies, catch rising air currents and soar like a bird on one of their gliders! Gliding is a fun, eco-friendly and inexpensive way to fly. Learn in one of their two-seater gliders with an instructor to teach you how to check your glider, take off and fly until you’re confident enough to fly solo! If you’re looking to take to the skies without learning to fly yourself they also offer gliding experiences where one of their qualified gliders will take you up into the sky where you can relax and enjoy the amazing views.
