© 2021 BANBURY GLIDING CLUB
Gliding is hugely accessible and perfect for any occasion.
We often cater for groups of friends, families, scouts, schools, office days out and even corporate events. Whether it be a one-off or perhaps an annual event, there are few things that provide an affordable way to experience the world from above and give a genuine experience of being a pilot!
We fly you from a central location minutes from Banbury and the M40, easily accessed from London, Birmingham and Milton Keynes.
All our pilots are volunteers – fully qualified instructors – whose enthusiasm is infectious. We’re flying you because we enjoy it, not because we have to pay the mortgage.
We offer half day and full day experiences, at an active airfield. Plenty to see and do. We’ll make every opportunity to give full briefings and share with you the joys of silent flight. Glider flying is real flying, in its purest form.
You’ll be out in the countryside with proper nosh – tea, coffee and butties. Real pilots’ food. And at the end of your experience we can recommend great country pubs for you to compare stories.
How often do we hear that we should take a ‘high level view’? Let your colleagues or customers see things from 2,000 feet whilst flying a glider. Flying in a glider is unique. Everyone remembers their flight.. the flight that you gave them.
