Trial glider course

Experience the fascination of flying now!

During a glider taster course on the Wasserkuppe you will learn about flight training. And of course you take off on your first flights!

From briefing to the preparation for take-off to the air and back again: in the trial course you are already actively participating in flight and training operations on the Wasserkuppe.

You should bring that with you

If you are at least 14 years old, healthy, not heavier than 110 kg and not taller than 2 meters, you can take off with us in the trial course. Previous knowledge is not required.

Included services

The one-day glider taster course costs 250 euros and includes:

Detailed opening briefing
Three take-offs together with an experienced flight instructor
Three flights with our training machine with about 30 minutes flight time

Dates and booking

We would be happy to arrange an appointment for a trial day in gliding with you individually.

I recommend the taster course to all those who experience the fascination of aviation and want to learn about glider training with us on the Wasserkuppe.
