What are the long term costs?

Getting to a solo standard costs around £800, and getting to the standard you can fly cross country is a similar amount again. The cost is similar to going on the Varsity Ski Trip.

If you can afford £30 per month you can do gliding. For £60 per month you can do loads of gliding.

How much are flying lessons?

Instruction is free, but you pay for the launch and for the airtime in the glider.

Winch Launch - £8.25

Airtime (Instructed) - First 10 minutes free, then £25.92 per hour

Airtime (Solo in our ASW19) - £9 per hour

A typical training flight will fit in the 10 minutes free airtime.
