Had a great day at the DG Club saturday. A great first flight experience and good set of people. Good exercise too moving the odd glider or 6 round the airfield.
Firstly I would like to say thanks for the warm welcome at the club the other week when I came on a chance of being able to fly. To have 5 short flights during the week I was in the area was great. I wanted to 'have a go' and certainly did and enjoyed every minute of it. To get a grip of the controls and learn about how the stick and rudder pedals actually work together was great. Thanks to all at the club and please pass on my thanks to Amy and Mike who took me up, they made me feel at home in the aircraft and gave me excellent tuition. As I was on holiday in the area, it is difficult for me to return on a regular basis but will certainly drop by again when I can. The experience has certainly whetted my appetite and I am looking to visit Bowland Club in the next few weeks as the closest club to where I live and give it another go. I will complete your survey and check out your FB page. Thanks again and hope to see you when next in the area.
I just wanted to send a quick email to say thanks to everyone that was at the club last Saturday afternoon, I felt very welcome during my first gliding experience. I had a great time and I think I may have caught the bug because I'm itching to come back! Hopefully that will be sometime in November (how's the weather this weekend?) and I'm certain that I'll be asking to become a member when I return.
Ian and I had a wonderful glider flight yesterday, an experience of a lifetime - a dream come true. Many thanks to our pilots and and to Scott Keenan for arranging it all.
We wanted to thank you all for such a great visit last weekend. We were all a little nervous but were put at ease by everyone's professionalism, kindness and understanding. It was a huge adventure and we enjoyed every moment. Amy was a star, so patient and Jill thought you were great. We would recommend this to anyone who is a little apprehensive, the fears will soon go. An amazing experience and such kudos with everyone we have told, and believe us we are telling everyone! Thanks so much, we certainly plan to come again.
Tina, Lee, Jill and Roger
Thoroughly enjoyed my day! First time in a glider... what a buzz! Felt safe in the hands of professionals ....smashing, friendly People. Thank you. NNte: I had reservations ... v glad I was (gently) persuaded xx
Came for my husband to have a single launch flight which I had bought him a voucher for his birthday - we regularly pass by on the way to our daughters and he'd always said he wondered what it would be like after having had a Cessna flight for a previous birthday present. We were welcomed by a great bunch of guys and Simon, who took him up, explained everything to him and put him at ease. He thoroughly enjoyed his flight and will readily return to repeat the experience. Thank you to all involved in our visit - it was money very well spent.
Had a fabulous weekend camping and gliding with our Scouts, 24 took to the air for the first time. They learnt so much. Thank you all for making us so welcome with special thanks to Al for all your hard work and preparation and Simon one of my Scouts from years back great to see you again and thanks for taking me up!
Had a fantastic time, experiencing gliding for the first time on Saturday. The weather was great, so views and visibility were amazing from 5000ft. A great bunch of people, keen to share their knowledge and passion for gliding. A very relaxed atmosphere, yet safe and professional. Gliding is not as expensive as most would imagine. I would recommend anyone to give it a go!
Just arrived back from a fantastic weekend at Darlton Gliding club. The club members were welcoming and helpful throughout. 24 scouts left very happy after a wonderful experience of flying and gaining so much knowledge about the gliders and weather etc. Thank you again and an extra thank you to Al & Simon Brown!
