Read about our Women go Gliding day here

Gliding

is often seen as a graceful descent to earth, but it's actually much more than that. It's about understanding weather and using up-drafts it creates to soar the skies, often for hours at a time.

Modern gliders are sleek, hi-tech and fast machines built from state-of-the-art materials. Unaided, they can be flown for hundreds of miles and can climb two miles high or more.

Our Club is dedicated to make it as affordable and as easy as possible for those who want to take part in this, the purest form of flying there is.

The Yorkshire Gliding Club

was founded in 1934 on moorland above the White Horse at Sutton Bank. Its aim was then and is now, to enable men and women of all backgrounds to experience the joy of flight. More on the history of our Club

A not-for-profit organisation, the Club operates seven days a week, and is run by members for themselves and to encourage people into the sport. We have a comprehensive and modern fleet of aircraft.  See Our Fleet

Men and women from all walks of life take part in a sport where everyone is equal. Apart from Club flying, each year we give Air Experience flights to around 500 people of all ages including young people and Scouts.

Our Club is especially interested in involving young people with gliding. See Junior Gliding

Share our experience

Gliding is an exciting sport for all and the Club welcomes visitors. Facilities include a cafe, lounge and outside seating, all with superb views. So, why not come and see the action for yourself?

Consider taking a flight or trying your hand in our state-of-the-art simulator. For those wishing to take things further, we offer a comprehensive range of training option with qualified instructors. Which is for you?
