First time GIF

I have my first gilder induction flight soon, and I was wondering is their anything that I need to know before hand? This has probably been asked 1000 times, but I just wanted some general tips/ dos and donts


  1. Enjoy the flight
  2. Enjoy the whole day
  3. Help out on the airfield (see point 2)
  4. Ask questions
  5. Listen to/watch the safety brief carefully


  1. Panic
  2. Take loose items into the glider
  3. Muck around
