Instructors

 

Let me introduce you to your instructor

We have the following categories of instructor:

  • Full Instructor, who run the field and can perform tests;
  • Assistant Instructor, who can train and coach from beginner to advanced;
  • Basic Instructor who can introduce people to the basics of flight and offer some experience on the controls;
  • Introductory Flight Pilot, who can take people for a flight and give them a taste of the air from a glider pilot’s point of view but the student cannot handle the controls except to follow through.

All of our instructors are trained and approved by the British Gliding Association.
