Do you know someone that has always wanted to be a pilot? Send them on an introductory gliding flight with a qualified instructor over Melbourne. 


Gliding Flight

Gliding is one of Australia's fastest growing activities, and it's easy to see why. The perfect mix of elegant flying, gentle exhilaration and friendly atmosphere at the gliding club makes for an unforgettable experience.

After an introduction with your qualified flight instructor you will be towed to your chosen release height by one of our tow aircraft (normally around 2-3,000ft). Once the required height has been reached the instructor will release the glider from the tow aircraft and the wonderful experience of "silent flight" commences. 

You will be soaring on the thermals in the same way as birds. In fact, with no engines to scare them away, don't be surprised if you are joined mid-flight by a local Sea Eagle! At his/her discretion, the instructor may also allow you to have some "hands on" flying experience and teach you the basics of flying the glider. 

This adventure flight is an excellent gift for any thrill seeker, with the option for time at the controls for someone who has always wanted to be a pilot.

I was very nervous approaching the time of the flight, but the staff handling the flight (Bill and the pilot Damien) were extremely understanding and put me perfectly at ease. The actual flight was marvellous and I had no nerves at all by then. It was an absolutely awesome experience and I loved every minute of it. Well done "The Adrenalin Crew" and "VMFG".
