Covid-19 Important Notice

Covid-19 still impacts our ability to offer gliding training and experiences, as well as limiting our ability to provide bar, catering and accommodation to members and visitors. The good news is that we are now in the process of opening up!

We’ve started by rescheduling all those flight experiences that were impacted by Covid – i.e. those with an expiry date after 17 March 2020. If you have one of these and have not been in contact with the office to rearrange it, please contact the Office to do so.

We have not yet restarted the recruitment of new members. To express your interest in joining, again please contact the office and ask to be put on the waiting list, so we can keep you informed.

Keep watching the website for further developments, as we open up more to the public.

Ridge, Thermal and Wave all from one unique site! Why not come along as a group on a week long expedition… 

Uniquely situated in the heart of the stunning Peak District National Park, we have ridges that can be explored in most wind directions and the Pennines can also kick off wave in almost any direction. Just ask our senior pilots about flying round the “lump” to Matlock!

Better still – try it on our simulator first…..
