If you're new to gliding and want to find out how you could learn to fly, or have a TRIAL FLIGHT to find out what it's like, then start at the Trial Flights section.

The Lakes Gliding Club is a year round training and soaring site, has a range of gliders available for club members and a well proven training programme. So whatever flying experience you have, you will be more than welcome to experience soaring flight in a glider at the friendliest gliding club in the UK.

IMPORTANT --- Airfield access, Visitors and Members, for security reasons our landlords require that the airfield gate is kept  closed at all times. Sometimes you will find a security guard at the gate and sometimes it will be locked. All members will be given a key for the lock on the gate following an airfield briefing. Until you have a key you will need to phone the club mobile as you get to the gate to have a  member come and let you in. Bring some change because if you forget your mobile or don’t have one there is a payphone at the airfield end of North Scale. The number to phone is on a notice on the gate. It is 07860 135447.
