Gliding can be an enormously pleasurable pastime

Beginning Gliding


Gliding can be an enormously pleasurable pastime, and everyone needs to start somewhere. Whether you just want to experience the relaxing sensation of unpowered flight while letting someone else take care of the glider, or whether you’d like to train to become a skilled pilot, Norfolk Gliding Club can help.


Gliding is a fantastic hobby and is suitable both both adults and juniors.



Norfolk Gliding Club are proud to be one the designated Junior Gliding Centres in The UK.

Subject to completing the required training, you can fly a glider solo at age 14. And there is no upper age limit. We recognise that all young people can benefit from support in gliding and so we have a fairly relaxed definition of ‘Junior’ – Junior gliding benefits and support apply to anyone up to 25 years old.


£45 / month entitles a Junior Member to 60 flights and 30 minutes flying time a day spread over the year April to MarchFlights are limited to 2 winch launched flights a day and 30 minutes, with 10 flights in a calendar month. Additional flights or flying minutes will be charged at club rates.

A junior member may participate in this scheme just once and it is limited to 3 years participation and a maximum age of 21.

Please talk to a committee member for more information. Full terms and conditions are available on the application form.
