The aim of the training is to obtain a license for a pilot of airplanes to tow a glider. The pilot should acquire acceptable knowledge and experience in glider towing technique and acceptable theoretical knowledge in dealing with emergency situations. The training is performed on a suitable type of aircraft (eg Cessna 172) and a towed Twin Astir glider from a partner school Flying Service DTO.
The theoretical part consists of 3-5 hours of preparation, where the technical data and limitations of gliders and the procedure and technique of carrying out the glider and safety procedures are discussed.
The practical part consists of the flights themselves with a towed aircraft.
