Solo in a week
The Taupo Gliding Club can now offer a course of Solo in a week with classroom study in the mornings and flying every afternoon conditions permitting.
The Taupo Gliding Club is fortunate to have both instructors and tow pilots willing to give their time to facilitate this course.
The aviation experience of our instructors in both professional and general flying is a great asset to the club, we now have sufficient tow pilots and instructors to operate 7 days.
As a student there are many advantages to a live in course. On site accommodation is often available or you can pitch a tent, use your camper van or stay in town.
The ability to immerse yourself in the activities of the club, from morning glider preparations, glider rigging, to assisting with launches, hangering at the end of the day and then to a chat over a beer after flying has finished, the peace and serenity of a quiet airfield are all part of the experience and make this a unique opportunity.
Taupo is the event capital of New Zealand, has unsurpassed options for adventure and activities off field so if gliding is curtailed due to weather or other reasons there is plenty to occupy your time.
