Grob Tutor

You are most likely to experience a flight in a Tutor at 10 AEF (Air Experience Flight) at Royal Air Force Station Woodvale (RAF Woodvale) near Southport.

If you are lucky, the pilot may ask if you want to do some aerobatics such as loops and barrel rolls. The pilot will sit on the right-hand-side of this aircraft and the passenger on the left.

The Grob Tutor has a 360° glass canopy that gives you the most amazing sights of the surrounding areas.

Grob Viking

This is a winch-launched glider that only has two main wheels and one tail wheel. It does not have an engine and the pilot sits in the front with the passenger directly behind, in the back.

We, at current, do not fly this glider at 631 VGS (Volunteer Gliding Squadron).

Grob Vigilant

This is the glider in operation at 631 VGS (Volunteer Gliding Squadron) at Royal Air Force Station Woodvale (RAF Woodvale) near Southport.

If you are lucky enough to obtain a gliding scholarship, this is the glider you will complete it in and maybe even go solo!

The Grob Vigilant is a powered glider - it has an engine - and the pilot is seated on the right with the passenger on the left; similar to that of the Grob Tutor.
