Winch Launched Flights
These can only take place on club flying days where there is sufficient crew available for safe launch operations.
You need to confirm whether we are flying or not on the day you wish to come. Check the Flying - Events page.
If you are coming from a long distance it is a good idea to call the club or instructor of the day to check. See Flight - Events and Contacts pages.

A Taste of Gliding - Winch
The thrill of a winch launch in a glider, the lovely countryside around Mangrove Mountain, gliding smoothly through the air.
This is an introduction to the pleasure and thrill of gliding, ideal for those who just want to see what it is like, look at the view, take photos or a video. The flight will be between about 5 minutes and 15 minutes depending on conditions.
The charges for insurance, 30 day membership of the Gliding Federation of Australia and our club are covered in this cost.
The Double Deal - Winch-
.. A Taste ... and a Try
Time to enjoy and photograph the beauty of gliding at Mangrove Mountain, with either a longer flight or a second flight to have a fly of the glider yourself.
This is best for those who might like a greater exposure to gliding. First flight to look, see, feel and a longer or second flight to have a go. One flight if over 15 minutes, or two if the first flight is under 15 minutes.
This is an economical option where the additional second flight is less than what we charge our own members as all the major costs are included in the first flight.
Extended SLG Experience
.. The beauty of flight
See what high flying gliding is all about with a flight of 45 minutes to an hour over the magnificent Central Coast on an extended flight in the Super Dimona Motor Glider.
A great visual experience gliding at height above the Coast and Mangrove Mountain.
If you are wanting to learn to glide, this will also give you a long flight so you can have an extended time flying the glider.
This also covers insurance costs, club and GFA membership for 30 days where you can fly at our member rates on the winch in the SLG.
