Experience Flights, First Flights. 

We are planning to re-start our First Flight gliding experience flights in May 2021.  By this time we hope the virus will subside and we can offer First Flights.

We are extending the validity of First Flight vouchers for at least the period we are unable to offer experience flights due to Covid-19.  So you can feel secure you will get your flight.

Once the government’s guidance allows us to offer First Flights; we will update the website, and you will be able to make your booking. 



We are planning to start our 2021 courses in May 2021.

Expect to open for bookings at the end of November 2020.

Please watch the website for the latest information.




Regular communication with members is going out by email.

If you are a member and not receiving these emails (there are usually at least two a week) please send an email to the chairman and we will update your details.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact the Club by email (office@midlandgliding.club).

In the meantime, Stay Safe.

Your committee is doing everything it can to make it possible for us to continue flying and to make the operation of the club viable.  The rules are changing constantly and we have to respond in appropriate ways, often very quickly.  Please support your committee during these challenging times.
