Gliding Days Escapade
A true and literal Fly-away
Have you tried flying in a glider? If yes, there is no need to explain you further. But if you have not had this experience yet, you are definitely missing something.
The arrival at the airfield is just the snack. El aperitivo. You see pilots and helpers preparing their silent flying machines. The sun shines over the polished wing surface. The canopy is open, so you can have a look at the few instruments and controls. Those you are about to learn and use.
After the explanations about the principles of flight, how to turn and how to negotiate the altitude, it is time to sit in the cockpit. It is a white, long-winged, two-seater glider, and your master pilot gives you the final indications.
Now you feel how the tug airplane is accelerating, and notice how your wings slightly bend up and... you are airborne. After your glider is released, high up in the sky, you hear nothing but the air. You feel well, really well, plenty of attention on each movement and turn, noticing how the thermal lifts your airplane.
Is this story interesting you? Don´t hesitate any more. Give yourself such a magical adventure. You will very likely repeat it.
