Dartmoor Gliding Society, based 3 miles north of Tavistock, is holding a gliding weekend for Women and girls aged 13 and over who are genuinely interested in learning to fly. Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or Guardian.

The club has been flying from Brentor Airfield for over 40 years and specialises in providing low cost accessible flying training to all comers.

We are a small and friendly not for profit club registered with the British Gliding Association (BGA). We have four 2 seater training gliders and 3 single seat gliders.

If you are interested in learning to fly and want to know more about gliding please come along and see us or contact us using the form below

The day will consist of a brief overview about gliding, a tour of the airfield and how we launch gliders followed by a flight in a glider with one of our BGA qualified instructors.

You would be welcome to spend the whole day with us or just a couple of hours whatever suits you best.

The day, including the flight, is £50 for adults and £25 for Junior (under 21s). You need to book a slot (10am or 2pm) by contacting us using the form below stating which slot and whether adult or Junior. Please arrive 20 minutes before your slot.
