This new offering enables you to fly in our vintage, open top and British-built Slingsby T21. With a side by side seating arrangement (different to all other aircraft in our fleet), this glider is one built for thrill seekers and enthusiasts alike, and holds a special place amongst our member's hearts.


With the closest possible link to you and the birds, this aircraft not only lets you experience aviation in it's truest form, but allows you to feel the wind in your face.


Our experienced instructors will take you up and allow you to fly this special piece of aviation heritage, all above one of the oldest airfields in the country.

Vintage Glider Experience

  • Newly purchased flight experience vouchers are now valid for two years.

    Due to the age of the aircraft, this experience comes with additional weather restrictions. We reserve the right to offer an experience in one of our other two seat training aircraft and refund the difference if unable to fly the T21, however we will also provide the option to delay your flight until we can guarantee the use of the T21 (as much as reasonably possible).
