  1. :

    It has been a while since I did the full course with Poliglide (4 years actually), and getting back into flying again after a long break is challenging.

    As a busy professional working weekdays and travelling interstate and internationally, its difficult to set aside the time to devote to flying, but when you do, its worth it. Its important to get refreshed in the basics again and the Refresher Course is a must for anyone out of the sport for an extended time. The Poliglide course is great because its so flexible and Andrew is always willing to tailor the training to your requirements.

    Starting with basic Ground Handling, pretty soon the training memory returns and its on the brakes, pitch control and transitions forward and reverse at will.
    Soon I’ll be climbing off launch on my way to 1000ft.
    I recommend this refresher to anyone out of the sport for a while who wants to get back into the sky.

    Thanks Poliglide.

      Hi Steve. Glad your back on board. Perfect time of the year to get refreshed as well. You picked it back up really fast considering the length of time you have been away from flying. It was a good idea coupling this refresher training with a towing endorsement. I’m looking forward to our next session. Andrew
