Overview

Fly a glider and caress the sky. Gliding - the ultimate high! The premier gliding club located in central Oxfordshire, we provide training for absolute beginners and experienced pilots. All instructors are fully qualified to BGA standards and rated instructors. We also provide introductory flights for those considering taking up gliding or just wishing to experience the joys and thrills of flight - something that makes a great birthday present. The instructors all fly for the pleasure of flight, are passionate about this fantastic sport and hope to enthuse others to take up gliding. The club flies every weekend and midweek for most of the year. In winter, midweek flying does occur but on fewer days, as the sport is weather dependent. We offer winch launches, aerotow launches behind a powered aircraft, and flights in a self launching motor glider. Midweek, we can also offer a video of your flight as an extra.

I actually visited here in April 2016 but had a brilliant experience in the front seat of a glider. The whole flight is recorded onto an SD card so you can then re-watch it back home from the safety of your computer!

Reviews can be useful or sometimes seem a bit out of sync with the reality of the experience....in this case, the club was every bit as nice, friendly, professional and all round great, as described by earlier visitors. Like others we had vouchers and probably...More
