Join the gliding Centre& why The Gliding Centre is a great choice
Finding the best club can be challenging
Finding a club that provides all the things that a pilot needs can be a daunting task, at the Gliding Centre we’ve worked hard to gather everything that you need to fly.
As a Flying Member you can take advantage of over 65 years of club history and arguably the best resources in the country. We can help you take to the skies in one of our high performance modern gliders. From May to October we also retain a BGA instructor on our staff, dedicated to running courses and helping you to become a better pilot.
Our annual subscription and flying charges are modest and there is no charge for instruction. We are able to keep our prices low because our members all play their part in the various activities of airfield operation.
To apply simply contact us and we will take you through the process.
Once we receive your application, we will respond with confirmation of your membership as soon as it has been approved.
To help budget your flying we also offer Aiming for Solo packages which includes one year’s membership and all flying fees up to the point of solo. Or you might choose to pay as you go. Either way, we’d be delighted to welcome you. Simply complete the application form.
We participate in the BGA Junior Gliding initiative. We also offer a limited number of junior scholarships at preferential rates to help youngsters begin their flying careers. Please Contact Us for details.
Associate membership is available for non-flyers who wish to use the club’s facilities.
