Shalbourne Gliding


Unfortunately, although lockdown regulations now permit private aviation, we do not expect to recommence operations before 30th May, and social distancing rules still only allow for solo flying.

We are therefore not yet able to offer Trial Lessons. Please contact us for advice before purchasing a voucher, or if you have a voucher which you were hoping to use in the near future.

For the time being, the club is open only to club members. Please do not come to the airfield.

Visit us at Shalbourne and share the thrill of flying over one of England's most beautiful downland sites. We are located close to the point where Wiltshire meets Berkshire & Hampshire, 4 miles south of Hungerford, midway between Marlborough, Newbury and Andover.

Weather permitting, we meet at Rivar Hill for flying on weekends, bank holidays and most Wednesdays. Just come along sometime, and we'll fit in your initial trial lesson as quickly as we can, starting from just £45*

* Payment by cash or cheque; regrettably we cannot process cards at the airfield.
