While it is true that summer is the best time for gliding, the actual training can be done at any time of the year as long as the weather permits. Via the Internet, the student pilot is informed about the training days.
Instruction is done on a double-seater glider ASK 21 type until the first solo. An average of 60 to 80 flights (most aerodorme circuit flights) is required until the the student pilot is released for his first solo flight. Then the training continues on single-seater, but always under the supervision of the monitor.
Then follow the practical exam which is the completion of the glider pilot instruction, two or three years after your first flight with instructor.
