The Introductory Flights: You will receive some ground instruction prior to the flight and during the flight you will get a chance to fly the sailplane.

We also take a roll of pictures on every flight in the trainer and the rides for two. You will be given a SD card that contains your pictures and videos. We do our best to take pictures during the flight, however sometimes the camera's do not work properly.
