Air Experience Days - Scouts
Air experience days are available of groups of up to 10 people per day.

Stage Activity badge requirements can also be covered on the day with resources available for prior learning to cover all requirements.
Hertfordshire Scouts Falke Motor Glider is available for Scouts, Explorers & Network wishing to offer a flying experience to their section. Flights will take place in our Falke Motor Glider at Cambridge Gliding Club accompanied by an instructor. Each Scout will have the opportunity to handle the controls during their 20-minute flight. A normal session provides 7 people with the chance to fly, on some occasions it may be possible to fly up to 10 by prior arrangement.
For the 2023 season flights are available on the 1st weekend of the following months, April, May, June, July, September and October. Due to the limited opportunities available, priority is given to Hertfordshire Scout groups. Other Scout Groups are welcome to make enquiries however we will only convert this to a provisional booking no less than 2 weeks before if the date is still available.
Due to the nature of this activity, the weather plays a large part on flying conditions, which means that flights cannot always go ahead as planned. All bookings are therefore ‘subject to weather’. Our experienced team will review the forecast and if required cancel your booking. Where possible we will notify you at the latest the day before, however changes on the day may result in the activity being cut short as the instructor will constantly review the conditions to ensure the safety of all.
If weather conditions mean that we cancel your flights before arrival, you will be entitled to rebook your visit based on availability.
Please complete the form below to make a provisional booking enquiry. After checking availability, we will send you a booking summary and booking form for you to check and sign before returning to us with a 25% deposit within 14 days.
