Learning to fly gliders is not difficult; anyone with average skills can do it and there are no special requirements. Just like driving a car, there are some mechanical skills and “road rules” to learn and some judgement skills to acquire. Here is how we give you those skills.
Our instructors are certified to a high standard set by the Gliding Australia and your training will follow the GA Integrated Training Program - you can download the trainee pilot guide which covers the units required to take you to solo HERE.
Gliding is a club operation run by volunteers and all members are expected to pitch in and help. That means you are expected to be there for the whole day and help others with their flying, just as they help you. Over time, you will learn how to get gliders out of the hangar, give them a daily inspection (DI), tow them down to the runway, hook-up and help launch them, retrieve them after landing and so on.
This is not just work but part of your learning as you watch and see what others do, talk to more experienced pilots and make new friends. GCV at Benalla is a very social club with a great club-house and after-flying activities. Make a weekend of it!
