Due to the flight limitations of our gliders there is a weight limit of 16 stones (102 kilos) and a height limit of 6’3″ (1.9m). There is no upper or lower age limit but you must be able to get into and out of the glider. If you are under 16 years old we will require a parental consent form to be signed. If in doubt please contact the office for advice.
