About Us

We’re a Gliding Club located in the heart of Lincolnshire and we would love to tell you a bit more about ourselves!

We are a gliding club based at Saltby airfield, between Melton Mowbray and Grantham. We operate seven days a week, 364 days a year (weather dependent).

There are introductory flights and courses to allow you to experience gliding for yourself. If you wish to go further and take club membership, our instructors can train you to the point of flying solo…and beyond!

So whether you are new to gliding and want to try a gliding experience, looking to buy a gift for a loved one, or if you want to learn to fly gliders yourself we have a range of flights, courses and memberships for you.
