LEARN TO FLY

SHORT COURSES

Welcome to The Gympie Gliding Club

We have around fifty members whose ages range from 15 to 80. This is a wonderful sport for those looking for a little more excitement and diversity in the activities. Great people, amazing views, and a sense of freedom that only flight can give you.

EXPERIENCED INSTRUCTORS

Learn to Fly

Gliders are like surfboards of the sky. It takes skill and understanding of the invisible forces at play.

AIR EXPERIENCE FLIGHT

Excellent Gift Idea

Gift Vouchers available for that extra special present, or spoil yourself with this once in a lifetime experience.

SHORT COURSES

10 Flight Courses

The perfect way for people to try gliding to see if it is really what they want.

Anyone over 15 can fly solo, after training of course. It is possible to do your training while you are 14 and go solo on or after your 15th birthday, as a number of people at the club have done. If you are a visitor you will be able to fly in the front seat of one of our two seat gliders. A qualified instructor will give you an Air Experience Flight (AEF). This will give you your first taste of gliding.

The Gliding Club operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays. However if it’s raining or very overcast then there will probably be no gliding on that day. The middle of the day is the best time to go flying however on a busy day it’s first come first served.

The best time to arrive is about eight to nine o’clock, at this time you will be able to see the gliders being inspected and prepared for the days flying. Gliding usually finishes in the afternoon when the heat starts to die off, though this time changes throughout summer and winter.
