The Gliding Centre
With a welcoming club house, long E/W grass runway and easy access to J1 of the A14, we’re perfectly placed in the middle of over 1.5M potential Glider pilots!
We have arguably the best facilities in the country for Gliding. A comprehensive Club fleet, superb club house, nearly unrestricted airspace and our own 6,000 foot runway!
The Gliding Centre is a members club with over 260 flying and 60 associate members. We have an active and (more importantly!) enthusiastic membership that covers the whole spectrum of pilots, from pre-solo to past master.
Our annual subscription and flying charges are modest and there is no charge for instruction. We are able to keep our prices low because our members all play their part in the various activities of airfield operation.
To apply simply contact us and we will take you through the process.
Once we receive your application, we will respond with confirmation of your membership as soon as it has been approved.
To help budget your flying we also offer Aiming for Solo packages which includes one year’s membership and all flying fees up to the point of solo. Or you might choose to pay as you go. Either way, we’d be delighted to welcome you. Simply complete the application form.
We participate in the BGA Junior Gliding initiative. We also offer a limited number of junior scholarships at preferential rates to help youngsters begin their flying careers. Please Contact Us for details.
Associate membership is available for non-flyers who wish to use the club’s facilities.
As a Flying Member you can take advantage of over 65 years of club history and arguably the best resources in the country. We can help you take to the skies in one of our high performance modern gliders. From May to October we also retain a BGA instructor on our staff, dedicated to running courses and helping you to become a better pilot.
