Cross-country flight course

Cross-country flight - the premier class of gliding

Do you fancy extensive cross-country flights? You want to go “really” on the track, but maybe you don't really dare?

Cross-country flight course in a two-seater

Our experienced flight instructors will take you on a route in a double seater. They explain how to find and use termics effectively. You will learn how to take your last beard with you even in the event of weak thermals in the evening.

Of course, we also refresh our knowledge of outlanding fields to ease the fear of a possible outward landing.

Folding engine instruction

Most of the flying school's gliders are equipped with a retractable engine. In the cross-country flight course, we of course also deal with the correct operation and effective use of the "lull slide".

When flying cross country, it is important to use the thermal options of the day of the flight, but also the huge potential that modern gliders offer tactically and skillfully to achieve the set goals.
