“The good folk at the Benalla Gliding Club were very professional and organised. After the initial brief registration, paperwork and safety briefing it was off to the glider. In no time we were airborne on a very exhilarating smooth flight. After release from the tow plane the only sound was the wind over the wings. The pilot was friendly and very knowledgable about the surrounds and sights. He was also very thorough in explaining how the glider stayed in the air and indeed how it could remain that way or gain altitude. As promised the landing was gentle and graceful. This is an experience for those who want a fantastic view, smooth comfortable ride and an unforgettable experience without any adrenalin or fear. I am going to organise a flight for my 80 year old mother in law. Do not hesitate, just do it. You will not regret it!”  The FreemanX Team
