Learn to fly

Whether you’re simply looking for the perfect form of escapism from everyday life, or at a career as an airline or military pilot, learning to fly a glider will give you a good set of skills and experience. The Yorkshire Gliding Club offers professional instruction in modern gliders seven days a week. During the summer, we hold ab-intio evenings for student pilots who would like to fly after the working day is done!
