Thermal Flight in Bucharest

thermal flight in bucharest

Choose a unique experience – Thermal flight in Bucharest. This kind of flight is performed with a glider and it makes use of thermal columns. You and our experience pilot board the double commanded glider. An airplane will tow the glider to the right height and then your aircraft detaches itself. Using a thermal column, which is a term for hot air ascending from the ground in invisible swirling – just like a tornado, but much less powerful – you will ascend in spirals until you reach the clouds.

Make sure you book this activity in advance because thermal flight in Bucharest requires very specific weather conditions.

  1. :

    I arrived at the airfield where I was greeted by a kind, young gentleman who turned out to be the pilot.
    His dedication and his way of talking to me about the flight made all my fears go away.
    I mention that I have a fear of flying (I had)!
    The flight was indescribable, it gave me the feeling of complete freedom!
    Congratulations on the originality,
