Used an experience voucher for an extended gliding experience. Experienced aero tow, and winch launches, and got to take the controls on every flight. Instructor Ian was knowledgable, patient, and helped make a fantastic day.

Went here with a few friends on a Sunday morning with clear skies. An amazing experience. If you are in Cambridge for a few days, take the first half of the day to experience gliding. It's an experience second to none.
