  • Sorry very disappointed with the flight I experienced yesterday. Advised to be at airfield by 12 noon..... tow plane did not arrive until 1.30 before we finally took off …. very disappointed in the actual flight very noisy being in the front seat, would have preferred the rear seat.... people who I know having flown at other venues said the experience was a quiet time of reflection and very exhilarating.... my experience this was not so.... constant humming noise when getting uplifts and turning the glider..... was advised it was normal to have constant humming noise.... not so with other flightees at other venues. Would not recommend club glider which was the one used.
  • Great people and a nice place to fly! I can only recommend it.
