Let's go gliding

The Scottish Gliding Centre is located under the wide skies of Kinross-shire on the shores of Loch Leven.

Our experienced gliding instructors are ready to take you on an exhilarating flight across the hills and lochs of Perthshire, Fife and beyond.

We welcome experienced pilots as well as absolute beginners and you’ll find we have something for everyone.

What is gliding?

Gliding uses the same naturally occurring currents of air that birds use to fly. These currents, or ‘lift’ allow the craft to travel great distances at average speeds of around 70 mph.

Here at the Scottish Gliding Centre we offer several ways that you can take to the skies, or even start your journey towards becoming a qualified glider pilot.

Take a trip in a two-seat glider with one of our experienced pilots and feel the exhilaration of unpowered flight.

Gliding is for everyone! Age and physical ability are no barriers and the Scottish Gliding Centre is home to the Walking On Air foundation, which provides gliding experiences for those with disabilities.
