Gliding Competitions at The Gliding Centre
Each year at The Gliding Centre, we hold a range of competitions including Regionals, Nationals as well as our own Task Week which caters for club level pilots.
Details of this years Nationals and Regionals can be found here.
Competition weeks are an exciting time at The Gliding Centre. Visitors are welcome to come to watch the launch window as we launch grids of up to 65 gliders in a one hour slot each day, using up to 9 tug aircraft, on cross country competition tasks of hundreds of kilometers.
Also, watching the gliders stream back in to the airfield at high speed at the end of the tasks is one of the most impressive sights in sport aviation, and there is a real buzz around the club during the days and evenings with crews and pilots in good competitive spirit!
