Husbands Bosworth is a 1500 metre East / West grass airfield with a 300 metre asphalt strip that we use during the winter. if you are looking for something a little different for a gift then we offer air experience vouchers. Want to dip your toe and see if learning to fly i what you would like to do then try our one day course. We also have a cafe which is open 0800-1600 hours and conference facilities.

I went to Sibbertoft for a one day introduction course in gliding.

I had an initial briefing from my instructor Bruce followed by five flights including an aero tow.

Throughly enjoyable day in great surroundings.

Friendly staff with a very reasonable cafe within the club house.

Highly recommended.

Thank Tony B

I did a 1 hour taster of gliding for my birthday and had a great time. Wonderful exhilarating experience soaring above Northants/Leicestershire. Everyone was really friendly and helpful and it was good to learn a bit about the history of this WW2 airfield from chatting to people. Just need to decide whether to come back for the full day option now.

My partner went up in a glider here for the 1st time ever. The whole experience was excellent. All the staff were welcoming and friendly. The glider pilot was informative and really good. Top class day to remember.
