Take to the skies with us!
is an adventure sport for people from age 14 up into their 90's. It offers the purest flying experience, using up-drafts to soar the skies, often for hours at a time. It is also one of the most affordable way to learn to fly due to the fact that gliding clubs are mostly volunteer run organisations; which also makes soaring a very friendly and social sport.
The Yorkshire Gliding Club was founded in 1934, by a group of pioneering aviators seeking to understand the potential of powerless flight. Today, we are dedicated to providing high-quality training and facilities, affirming our position as the best soaring club in the North of England. We offer professional, friendly instruction guided by our national sporting body, the British Gliding Association.
To get a feel for our sport and our club, watch our videos, and explore our website to find out more about why we love what we do. You can also sign up to our mailing list to learn more about gliding, and stay up to date with the adventures of those who fly from Sutton Bank.
