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 friendly bunch of glider pilots who soar around Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. We fly seven days a week from our home at Saltby Airfield, located between Grantham and Melton Mowbray.

Soaring is a magical experience, each gust quietly lifts you higher before you race off to explore more of the sky.

Our expert pilots can take you for a flight to experience gliding for yourself. If you wish to go further, 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. 

If you are an established glider pilot and want to expand your skills with aerobatic, motor gliding or cloud flying we are able to tailor a gliding package for you….
