Limited Return to Flying after Relaxation of Covid 19 Lock Down Rules

Following an easing of Covid 19 Lock Down rules, the club is now, slowly, returning to flying for all Club Pilots.  Adopting standards advised by the British Gliding Association and Civil Aviation Authority we have now commenced dual flying for club members again.  The sale and redemption of Glider Flight Experiences vouchers (formerly Trial Lesson Vouchers) remain suspended until further notice.


More information for members with regard to Covid 19 avoidance procedures can be found in the Members Area 

Excellent Flying Conditions Have Given Members An Opportunity For Achieving Advancement Goals

This July four of our pilots have achieved milestone flights 

  • David Cooper achieved three goals in one flight Silver Distance (50km), Silver Height (3,000ft gain above launch height) and Silver Duration (5hrs).

  • Dave Shirley gained his Silver Duration

  • Nigel Day gained his Silver Height

  • Chris Young also gained his Silver Duration

Well done to all four, who achieved these goals from a winch launch and in the Club's K8 Glider.

Sales of Glider Flight Experiences. (Formerly Trial Lessons)

Due to Covid 19 avoidance procedures, the sales and redemption of Glider Flight Experience Vouchers will remain suspended for now, until we able to continue with this programme without risk to customers or club members.

For customers who have already purchased vouchers, we will extend the voucher on the resumption of our flying programmes. We are contacting all customers who have already booked a date for their trial lesson, to cancel the flight, but not the voucher.
