Gliding Courses

Our 2 & 5 Day Courses

The best way to discover the joys and challenges of gliding at husbands Bosworth is to come on a residential gliding courses. We run these course throughout the Soaring Season and retain full time instructors for you, in fact we never have more than a 2:1 pupil to instructor ratio so you will progress as rapidly as possible with plenty of time with the instructors.

You will be able to use our modern club gliders and use aerotowing and winch launching.

The courses include demonstration and tuition for all of the phases of flight, including: launch, gliding, soaring, the circuit and landing. 

 At the end of the course you’ll be a significant step forwards to becoming a glider pilot and ready to continue learning. To make this as easy as possible we include a months membership at the club so you can take advantage of our low launch costs and all members receive complimentary tuition!
