Fly a glider at North Wales Gliding Club

What could be better on a gorgeous, sunny day than flying silently along, using the natural energy of the sun and air to glide as smoothly and as freely as any bird? Some days, the Buzzards and Red Kites come to fly with us, or should I say, show us how it should be done.

Experience the sheer delight of gliding along silently, choosing where you want to go. Experience the thrill of complete and utter freedom - something which is getting harder to find elsewhere. At North Wales Gliding Club (NWGC) we have a small, friendly group of people, who love flying over the beautiful Welsh countryside. We offer full training to anyone wanting to learn to fly a glider.

Is gliding hard?

In a word - No. Like any sport gliding does take some effort to learn, but the lessons are not much different from learning to drive. Anyone can learn to fly a glider and our members range in age from teenagers to pensioners and everything in between. Youngsters are able to be passed to fly Solo at 14 years old.

Do I need my own glider?

No you do not. Our fantastic trial membership packages allow you to try out gliding for two months for as little as £90. It is time to get out of that chair and give yourself the ultimate freedom of silent flight.

Give a gliding lesson as a present

Why not give your nearest and dearest - or a friend - a fantastic, unforgettable gift this year? The memories from a glider flight will last a lifetime. This wonderful experience, flying over the Welsh valleys as silently as a bird, is highly enjoyable and never fails to produce a huge ear-to-ear grin. From your point of view it could not be simpler. Just click here and read how simple it is to get a gift voucher sent to you.

Latest from Glide Britain


We all know that there are a lot of misconceptions about gliding. The latest video from Glide Britain attempts to dispel them.


British Gliding Association (BGA) videos

A series of short films which showcase gliding with the aim of attracting newcomers to the sport are now available for the world to see on YouTube.

The films were produced by award-winning film maker, Ben Jacobson, in collaboration with volunteers from Glide Britain, gliding clubs and the BGA.

Each film shines a spotlight on the gliding community and is an excellent introduction to the exhilarating pastime currently enjoyed by more than 8,500 glider pilots across the UK.

Rick's 40th Birthday Gliding Experience

A taste of your or your loved one's Trial flight or lesson, kindly provided by Rick, who, as you can see below enjoyed the experience.

"I just wanted to express my gratitude for the wonderful time you all gave Isabelle, Jenna and myself yesterday! We all had a very special day with you; one which I especially will remember fondly for the rest of my days.

I saw on your website that you already have quite a few flight videos, but I thought you might like to see the one I’ve put together to remember the day by.
