Deeside Gliding Club

Toggle location map

Fly silently over Royal Deeside and the enjoy the spectacular views of the Cairngorms National Park with Deeside Gliding Club. 

You will fly in a two-seater glider with a fully trained instructor where you can learn to fly, enjoy the scenery, take photos or all of these.

Your trial flight fee includes three months membership so if you are visiting you can fly again, at club member rates, before going home. Or if you are local you can visit several times and learn to fly with no further costs other than normal flying fees.

All launches are by Aerotow - where an aircraft pulls the glider into the sky and releases. Depending on the weather you can try to soar. These gliders can soar like birds and stay airborne for hours flying you hundreds of miles across country, and climb thousands of feet - the UK height record was set at this club.

Simulator available for teaching flying lessons when the weather is bad.
