Aero Tow – Air Experience Flights
Air Experience Flights (AEF)
To try gliding Aero-tow launch Air Experience Fight is for you. Aero-tow launching is where the glider is towed into the air by a powered aircraft to 2000ft (650metres) above the ground and released, the pilot then searches for the thermal up currents to soar in and climb to the base of the clouds, then fly in search of more thermals.
The cost for an AEF flight is $180 for approximately half an hour.
AEF aero-tow flights can be arranged for most days of the week but idealy Sundays is best for us.
Depending on the whether, we aim to stay air-born for of 20 to 30 minutes. For your money you get to fly in one of the club’s two seat gliders with one of our fully qualified instructors. You will be firmly strapped into the front seat where you get the best view.
During the flight you will be asked if you would like to take control of the glider, the instructor will demonstrate the various controls and their effects. The instructor will take care of the take off and landing so you can relax and enjoy the scenery.
Gift Vouchers are available.
We can cater for groups by arrangement using Aero-tow launches.
Becoming a member will allow you to fly at club rates which are cheaper than AEF flights.
An introductory 30 day membership is included in the $180 and was designed to allow people to come back for more flights (without having to pay the $40 temporary membership again). You can have up to 10 flights or 5 hours flying time in the 30 consecutive days.
If you are thinking of joining the club you may wish to come back and try a winch launch. Winch launch flights are only on club days, Wednesdays or Saturdays and are cheaper than aero-tow launches.
