Why not give gliding a try?
Here at the Wolds we offer a range of options for you to experience gliding. Not only will you be able to enjoy the thrill of unpowered, silent flight but you will also be encouraged to take the controls of the aircraft, even on your first flight! If you live around the Pocklington area it may also be possible for your instructor to fly you over your own house. We should warn you that gliding can be seriously addictive and indeed many of our members joined after getting "hooked" doing a holiday course or after having a trial lesson. We offer the following options for visitors to try gliding at Pocklington:
|Holiday Courses : Our 5 day holiday courses are an ideal way to get a flying start in gliding or even to brush up on some skills and progress towards your next gliding goal. With group sizes of 2-4 people and a dedicated instructor, you will be able to make very rapid progress in a short time. Our holiday courses are available to both members and non-members.|
|Gift Voucher : Looking for a unique gift for friends or family? Our gift vouchers make a perfect present for any special occassion. You can book a dedicated slot for your flights on any weekend day so you won't have to wait around. We offer 2 different voucher types offering up to 4 flights so click here for more information and to buy online.|
|Evening Groups : During the summer we offer outstanding value evening group flying events for 10 to 30 people. Your group will have the dedicated use of our flying facilities for the evening and on request we can offer a professionally catered barbeque while you relax in our own bar. Click here for more information on evening groups, check availability and book your visit today!|
|Day Membership : Become a member of the club for a day! Your fee includes your first flight and for the rest of the day you may continue to fly at normal club rates - see our price list. This is a great way to experience what being a member of WGC is all about and gain some basic flying skills. We normally operate Weds-Sun during winter and 7 days a week during summer but as a day member you may have to wait for your turn to fly if we are busy.
