Learning to Fly

At the Bundaberg Gliding Club we offer an Air Experience Flight if you want to just have a once off flight. The cost of this flight is $160 and includes short term GFA Membership with your flight of approximately 15-20 minutes. We also offer you a second flight for half price ($80.00), which must be taken on the day or the following weekend and must be taken by the same person.

PLEASE NOTE THE SECOND FLIGHT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR A DIFFERENT PERSON AS THE INSURANCE IS DEDICATED TO ONE PERSON.

We have gift certificates available if you wish to purchase one for a special occasion for a friend or loved one. Just contact us to organise your gift certificate.

If you wish to learn how to fly a glider you can join the club and hire our gliders at very reasonable rates. You will have a qualified instructor to teach you everything you need to know to work your way towards solo flight. When you are a member and hire the glider the instruction is free.

Why does Phil look so happy?

This is just before his first solo flight (29/7/07). John Godfrey (CFI) standing by checking Phil's pre-flight checks.

Phil took two solo flights on this day and did exceptionally well.

Well done Phil!

Yep you guessed it, Phil's second solo flight.
