Full description

Have you ever flown a glider?

If the answer is no, you can also try this new experience by taking part in our flying lesson: together with a professional pilot, you will practise the basics of gliding during a flight lasting about 25-60 minutes with the Julian Alps on the horizon. And yes, you will be able to try taking control of the aircraft!

An experience lasting 1½ hours in total, between land and sky in the province of Udine.

What we will do

I will be waiting for you 30 minutes before the selected time at the meeting point in Premariacco (UD). You will be welcomed by me, your pilot!

The experience will begin with a briefing during which I will give you all the information you need for our flying lesson, from the theory of gliding to the basics of soaring. I will then accompany you to the aircraft, which will be a glider: here I will explain behavioural and safety rules, before proceeding with boarding.

We will climb aboard, ready for take-off: after an initial tow, once at an altitude of around 1,000 metres, the glider will detach itself and begin its descent using only the updrafts. During the flight, which lasts approximately 25-60 minutes, we will practice the basics of gliding; after showing you the controls, you will be able to try piloting the aircraft using dual controls!

After waving goodbye to the beautiful panorama of the Julian Alps, which are only about 8 km away from the flight site, we will return to the meeting point. The experience will last a total of 1.5 hours.
