Thank you Skybolt, I couldn't agree more. It's a very special secret we enjoy, but we're always happy to share it with inquisitive guests. Definitely the best way to learn to fly an aircraft in an affordable way.

Great experience. Run by a very friendly, welcoming bunch of chaps. The flight itself is very exciting and provides stunning views of the surrounding area.

Very welcoming group with the whole operation run on the same lines as a normal airport, but at the same time, laid back but very professional. Thoroughly recommended.

My husband visited the gliding club during our recent trip to Northamptonshire. Everyone was super friendly, and we had a great few hours with them. Hoping we'll be able to return the favour one day in Calgary.
