Visited Darlton Gliding Club on Saturday 20th July 2019 on the off chance of getting a flight in a glider for my 11 year old grandson.

Arrived just as the weather started to improve and we were given a very warm welcome from all the members there. They were very friendly and made both of us feel at ease.

Very soon my grandson was kitted out with the safety gear, weights were added to help with stability and he was up in the air for his first ever glider flight. He was absolutely overjoyed with the experience.

A second take off and flight soon followed. It was an amazing experience for him, one he will never forget and when he found out he had become a temporary junior member, he couldn’t wait to arrange another visit for the next weekend.

I can’t thank the pilot Dave enough for the way he treated and interacted with my grandson. It made his day – he was buzzing with excitement. Thanks to all there and hope to see you again soon.
