Your first flights will be in a dual-control glider with a qualified instructor.  The process of learning to fly gliders is based on a defined training syllabus and program of skill development exercises Once you have been taught to fly to solo standard (on average 50 take-offs and landings) you will want to develop your newly acquired skills;  there are ongoing coaching programs to assist you with this.
