"Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth
with your eyes turned forever skyward, for there you have
been, and there you long to return"
Leonardo Da Vinci
Gliding is the ultimate free flying experience. It is a truly diverse sport that can be enjoyed at all levels: from the thriving club scene, to aerobatics, to international racing championships in a sport where the UK team is ranked amongst the best in the world.
The gliders you can fly soar using the same air currents that
birds use to fly, but have also been designed with the kind of aerodynamic
efficiency that enables top speeds of up to 170 mph. Distances of
over 600 miles have been covered in one day in the UK and heights
of almost 40,000 feet have been achieved. Gliding gives you the
freedom to explore the world from a unique birds eye view and discover
the many moods of the sky.
Gliding is also a sport for all ages - you can fly solo at 14 and there is no upper age limit.
