We are a modern Gliding club based in Husbands Bosworth
With a welcoming club house, long E/W grass runway and easy access to J1 of the A14, we’re perfectly placed in the middle of over 1.5M potential Glider pilots!
About our Club & its history
We have arguably the best facilities in the country for Gliding. A comprehensive Club fleet, superb club house, nearly unrestricted airspace and our own 6,000 foot runway!
Sally and the office would love to hear how they can help you or your loved one explore the skies above our wonderful county.
When you learn to Fly a Glider – learn with the best.
From our youngest Solo member of 14 to our oldest of 84 we have an active and friendly membership where you will learn one of the best sports in the country. First time pilots through to the current Open Class World Champion all choose to fly here.
When do we fly
364 days a year
We are open to members every day of the year apart from Christmas day. In the summer we have duty instructors every day of the week and in the winter we have 3 regular days. So you can come with us almost anytime you like.
Simply a Great Experience
I had a day here gliding which was a present from my partner. I had 4 flights, two winch and two towed take offs.
I had a few goes at taking control, not easy but had a great day and the flights seemed to get longer and better, even circling with other gliders, enjoying the peace and quiet and the views.
A great day out if you want to get away from the everyday madness!
Thanks to Bruce my instructor and the Gliding Centre, very friendly and comfortable atmosphere.

The BEST way to fly
Learning at the Gliding Centre has been amazing! The gliders and instructors have been great – thoroughly recommended! I am now looking forward to learning how to go Cross Country!
