Our group evening sessions are run from the midpoint of May all summer through to September, and are specifically designed for larger groups who can't all fly together on the same day. All flights run at a discounted rate and the optional BBQ includes main course and puddings!
The dedicated crew will ensure that all of your group gets to fly, and the opportunity for second flights is available on most evenings as well. The experienced instructors at Oxford Gliding Club can cater for people from all walks of life, be it twenty people who've never flown before all the way to flying school groups wanting to experience the purest form of flying.
Each session is available to all, be it business or pleasure. Previous groups have included office parties, Stag and Hen do's, team building exercises and school groups. We're able to fly almost anyone!
We offer both Friday and Saturday evening availability, with both sessions starting at about 1800. You'll be met by one of our members and get introduced to the crew's instructors. Once your group has assembled you'll be guided to the launch point where we'll fill in membership forms (please see the infomation below if your group contains people aged under 18), and provide a group briefing.
Each member of your group will be given a personal briefing in their aircraft by their instructor prior to their flight, and given the opportunity to ask any questions they have. They'll then be launched into the air by our winch for up to 15 minutes of flying, with the opportunity to take control of the aircraft and fly around the beautiful skies of Oxfordshire.
If you want to include food as well as flying, once everyone's flown and any additional flights are completed, we'll take you back to our clubhouse where a BBQ will be provided, and everyone can exchange stories of their experience!
