You would like to get a friend an unforgetable gift and experience?

You always wanted to try flying yourself?


TRY GLIDING - Buy an Air Experience Flight for yourself or a Gift Certificate for such a flight for someone special



Enjoy the unique and surreal feeling of silent flight across the beautiful Bathurst countryside.
The adventure begins with your friendly instructor giving you some safety instructions and demonstrations, this is the time to ask all those questions! Once this is all done you’ll take the front seat of your sleek glider.

After a smooth take off, the glider is released when it is safe to do so.  Now you can sit back and enjoy the unique thrill and tranquillity of silent flight that only gliding can provide.

If you are keen, you can fly the glider "hands-on" and take control after we demonstrate the basics to you in the air.  As the experience comes to a close, you will gently glide to a smooth and short landing, ready to jump out of the glider with a huge smile on your face.

What does it cost?

An local Air Experience Flight costs $250 for a flight of approximately 20 to 30 minutes including temporary GFA membership

Or a Mt Panorama Special flight of approximately 30 minutes for $300.


Dress Code:

Please wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes. Be aware of UV exposure at altitude. Apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses and a hat (the Akubra probably won't fit in the cockpit so a hat with a soft brim or with a limited peak is probably best).  We have Bathurst Soaring Club hats for sale if you want or need one. 


Additional Information:

Gliders are weight critical. Due to operational limitations, it might not be possible to take people over 100 kg for a flight.

If you become a member of BSC, the cost for each flight is charged on a two part basis: A launching fee of about $50 (for a launch to about 2,000 ft above the airfield) and glider hire of $51 per hour charged on a per minute basis. Our qualified instructors give their time free of charge. If you are Interested to check out our membership options? click here
