MEMBERSHIPS & FEES

Instead of our Welcome to Gliding Experiences and EGC Training Courses, you can simply join us straight away and pay for your flying at club rates as you go along. This is especially suitable for those who already have some gliding experience.

Below are the membership options if you choose to do this.

To join, please fill in the EGC Membership Application Form found HERE and return via email to enquiries@edgehillgliding.com.

We look forward to welcoming you!
