For anyone who thinks that they might like to take up gliding or are just looking for a thrilling day out, or to provide an unusual gift for a friend or a loved one, a trial flight is an ideal introduction to this exciting sport. SoarAbility at Cunderdin offers this opportunity so that you can experience at first hand the experience of quiet and environmentally friendly flight.
You can have a flight of 30 minutes or up to an hour with a qualified instructor in one of our two-seat aircraft. Depending on your needs, assistance is readily available for you to get in and out of the aircraft all at your own pace and utilising custom built lifts if required. When you have become comfortable and familiar with the cockpit environment, the aircraft starts its engine and taxies out to the runway to commence your flight. Once airborne and you have settled in to your new surrounds and feel the sensations of gliding flight, you can then elect to take the controls yourself, perhaps take photographs or a video, or just sit back and enjoy the experience.
Depending on the weather the glider will either rise steadily aloft in a thermal to gain additional altitude or simply and gently glide down from the height at which the launch motor is shut down and the propeller folded away. Either way it is the experience of a lifetime to soar quietly and effortlessly above the Western Australian wheat belt countryside.
A Trial Flight voucher costs from just $160 and you can purchase one for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
