Glide high above the Devon coast in our Scheibe Bergfalke 4 two-seat trainer for a flying experience unlike any other with Eaglescott Airfield Gliding.
Once you have received a short briefing on the aircraft and its controls, our tug aircraft will lift off, helping us to ascend to approximately 2000 feet in the air, the wide green expanse of the rich pastures of Devon stretching out beneath you, with the views expanding out to Dartmoor in the south, the hills of Exmoor and South Molton all being visible.
Once we are released from the tug the only sound will be the air streaming over the clear canopy at 50 miles per hour. The experience is akin to flying on a magic carpet!
Now it’s the time you have been waiting for, keep your eyes on the horizon and take control of this amazing aircraft, guide the nose up and down as you ascend and descend, feeling the air flowing over the wings, dip to the side into a bank, feeling the rush of acceleration as you soar through the air. Now that you have the hang of things your pilot will be able to relax from here, enjoy your flight and take her in for landing, of course, the professional will be on hand for this final crucial phase.
Nothing but pure flying pleasure, and a memory you will treasure for the rest of your life. Speak to the team at Eaglescott Airfield Gliding for more information.

Dartmoor Gliding Society
Welcome to Dartmoor Gliding Society!
We a small but friendly club situated on beautiful moorland in South Devon. We have been operating since 1983 so our team have plenty of gliding experience.
We are all gliding enthusiasts who take great pride in our club, and we have a well looked after grass runway, a refurbished clubhouse and a purpose-built hangar which houses our club fleet of 2 twin seat training gliders and 3 single seat gliders. Our location offers good thermal soaring, and when the wind is east there are waves to heights in excess of 16000 feet right off the end of the wire.
If you have never experienced gliding before, come and join us for a trial flight, or treat a loved one. If you want to continue learning to glide after your trial flight you can continue lessons with us to be a glider pilot. We invite you to experience a Trial Flight or to present as a gift this incredible and thrilling experience to a loved one.
Or, if you want to present a more intense and a full-adrenaline gift, we have the One Day Introductory course. The aim of this offer is to give the "co-pilots" a more profound and intense introductory session of gliding.
Have a go or complete course up to certifications with Dartmoor Gliding Society!
