The price of this guestflight is 25 €.
This is a typical take-off for our sport; the glider is launched by a winch which winds up at a speed of 110 to 130km/h a rope of a length of 1000m fixed to the glider and thus bringing it to a height of 400m above the ground.
The rope is then unhooked and the glider will continue its silent flight seeking thermal ascents to extend the duration of the flight. The glider guestflight is planned for a duration of 15 minutes if the weather conditions allow it. The pilot can not guarantee the full duration.
This type of guestflight is only possible during Sundays when the winch of the CLVV is operational!
The take-off in motorgliders looks more like a take-off with a small aircraft and during the 45 minutes of this flight the motoplaner is less dependent on the thermal ascents as the pure glider.
The price of this guestflight is 150€ for 45 minutes.
Motorglider "Super-Dimona" with fixed propeller used for these guestflights. Since this type of flight is less dependent on the weather, it can be done by appointment.
