TRAINING COURSES & EXPERIENCE FLIGHTS
REACH FOR THE SKY AT EDGEHILL GLIDING CENTRE...
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly high, taking in panoramic views of some of the most beautiful countryside in England and Wales? Or how birds manage to stay aloft for hours, soaring quietly and gracefully, and with so little effort? Or how it is possible for humans to emulate them, flying hundreds of kilometres without an engine?
Well, the good news is that you could do all of that in a glider! And we at Edgehill Gliding Centre would love to help you – from taking your first steps to guiding you as you progress through your gliding career.
You have two options to choose from: our sit-back-and-relax EGC Welcome to Gliding experiences and our hands-on EGC Training Courses, which will help you to progress through the British Gliding Association’s syllabus so that you become a fully-fledged and qualified glider pilot.
