Shalbourne Gliding

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 £40*

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