Learn to Glide

Learn To Glide

For those who are very sure gliding is for them, there is also the very popular 'Learn to Glide' package which includes three months membership.  We will also upgrade people from Air Experience flight or a Mini Course to a Learn to Glide package.

Week Long Courses
The SGC also offers week long courses for pilots of any experience level.  Whilst these are frequently chosen by ab-initios or as an adventure holiday, they can be tailored to suit early solo pilots, those aspiring to bronze badge, embryonic cross-country pilots etc.  This can include accommodation & meals in our clubhouse.  If you want to apply for one of these courses please download, print and fill in the application form (pre-solo), then return it to the Club with your deposit.
All training is carried out in our modern, rugged, 2-seater, dual-control, training gliders by experienced British Gliding Association (BGA) qualified instructors, and follows the BGA's syllabus.
Have a look at the web pages for the various courses and if you have any questions or if you want to discuss what's right for you, please contact the club.
