WELCOME TO EDGEHILL GLIDING CENTRE
Welcome to an exciting new gliding adventure! Through this temporary website we are pleased to announce that Edgehill Gliding Centre will be operating from Shenington Airfield from the end of 2021.
We hope that you can join us. We are a new club, but with the welcoming face that our many friends and supporters will recognise from the past.
Watch this space for more information on memberships, prices and our official opening.
We look forward to seeing you very soon!

Growing investment in new facilities, including new hangars for private gliders, a permanent clubhouse, bar and café, a new camp site with fixed tents and self-catering accommodation on site
The EGC Fleet will include the following:

Edgehill Gliding Centre will operate from Shenington Airfield. This 80 acre airfield offers opportunities to fly safely in all wind directions, providing access to our local ridge and its winter soaring.

Members and visitors will be able to stay on site, either camping or with a caravan.
