Look around our website using the menu above for full details of what we do and where we are.


We have two options for your first year of club membership as you learn to fly in dual control two seat gliders:

Learn to fly for £1085  (New members’ Introductory Offer of all launches and soaring fees in club gliders in your first 12 months and club membership, equivilent to £91/month)  (see costs)

Pay as you go option – yearly club membership + launch fee + glider hire per minute. Instruction is included. (see costs).  With this option you pay an annual subscription to the club and then pay for launches and air time as you go and as you use – this is how the club operates after your first year.
