All About Gliding

Gliding Nothing can quite compare to the elegance of silently soaring across the countryside.

Gliding gives you a truly unique and personal experience as you use the power of the extensive energy stored in local weather systems to glide and soar. With practise, gliding can take you hundreds of miles across the country's ever-changing scenery in a single trip.
 


GLIDING

Gliding

If you are aged 16 or over, gliding is a fantastic sport to discover how it feels to soar through the sky like a bird. Learn how to use the air currents to maximise your time aloft and travel at up to 150 mph across the beautiful UK countryside.
