In Flytime we bring you one of the most exclusive flight forms in the whole peninsula: the glider. The flight without an engine is an experience where you get on a towed aircraft to cross the skies maneuvering supported only by the currents. You can try it with us from the town of Montemor that is in Portugal.
It is an adventure with a duration of about 25 minutes that is done in the company of a professional instructor. It will make you a participant in all the phases of the flight procedure so you can learn a little more about this sport modality:
- You arrive at the airfield where the pilot receives you. You will approach the runway with him to contemplate the two aircraft that will be waiting for you. The one in front corresponds to the towing plane, is responsible for making the glider take off.
- You get on the glider while listening to the basic instructions to be part of this experience. It has two seats, placed one in front of the other, so you can travel comfortably with the pilot who will provide instructions on the controls throughout the process.
- Once the glider is in the air the tugboat has finished its work. You will be flying the indicated time with gentle maneuvers until you return to the track.
