How to use your voucher
Note that not all clubs operate every day of the week and that most clubs only offer some of the launch types listed above.
Select the club that appeals to you most and contact them to arrange your flight. Explain that you have a BGA trial lesson voucher and tell them which kind of flight you want to take. If you are not sure, then feel free to discuss this with them.
When the day comes, arrive at the airfield and follow any instructions given to you about where to report and what to do. Gliding is an adventurous flying activity. Although the risk is carefully managed at BGA clubs, flying in a glider is not as safe as flying in a commercial airliner and, as with anything involving machinery, there can be hazards even on the ground for the uninitiated.
Wear comfortable clothing but be prepared for cold winds on exposed airfields and, equally, for the warmth from sitting in a Perspex cockpit in bright sunshine! Sunglasses and a hat are good ideas and feel free to take a camera if you want. Friends and family who want to watch will normally be made most welcome, but do check with the individual club first. Make sure to bring your voucher with you and hand this over before the flight.
