Gliding Club

You've always requested the window seat; you've dreamt about being a pilot; or you're just curious to try. Isn't it time you learned how to fly?

Edinburgh University Gliding Club is currently one of the top University Gliding Clubs in the UK, and amongst the best equipped. Our instructors can take you from a complete beginner to flying a national competition before you can say, “I’ve graduated”! And the best part - learning to fly is cheaper than learning to drive!
