You can learn to fly with us.

We provide free instruction to Club members.

All training flights are provided in two-seat, dual control gliders with our friendly, fully qualified volunteer instructors.

You can start learning from age 15, and there is no upper age limit. If you’re fit enough to drive a car you’re probably fit to learn to fly gliders.
