Corporate days

Are you looking for something completely different and uniquely special for those exceptional customers, suppliers or as a reward for your employees? Ever thought about a gliding experience?


Junior gliding experiences

The YGC is proud to be a Junior Gliding Centre in the UK!
This means that we can offer Junior membership and gliding tuition to people under 21 at a substantially reduced cost.


Youth group flying

We work closely with the Scout Association to give flying experiences to Scouts, Cubs and Brownies. We also regularly receive visits from Air Cadets, Sea Cadets and other youth organisations.


Enjoy a family day out

The Club is a family-friendly place. If your family are interested in watching you fly, they’re welcome to come out to glider with you, to look aound the glider and take photos, and then to wait for your return.
