Learn to fly on the Wasserkuppe: your advantages
So it goes on after the compact course
At a glance: Training for a glider license
The glider license includes a legal minimum of 15 hours of glider flight training, including
The training for a glider license consists of these three modules:
Flight training for solo flight
At the beginning of your training, you will learn everything you need to know to master a glider safely in solo flight with the help of a flight instructor. This includes the operation of the glider, take-off and landing, orientation in the traffic pattern, flight path and flight altitude tactics.
We offer this module as a compact beginner course:
Exercises for flying skills
Here the previously learned flying skills are fine-tuned. Based on this, you expand your flying skills by recognizing and using thermal upwind. The aim of this training phase is to stay in the air with the glider for as long as possible.
Navigation and overland flight
In the last module, the training deepens topics such as navigation and meteorology, which pave the way for flying outside of the airport area, but above all for “supreme discipline” cross-country flying. You only need a flight instructor here for instruction.
The costs and the duration of modules B and C depend on the pilot's progress in training, the weather and flight times.
