As long as you don’t get travel sickness, the Gliding Centre is perfect and, of course, very safe and well-kept. I definitely recommend this to anyone wanting some high-flying action.

Had a fantastic morning enjoying gliding experience. Very friendly folk especially Mark my expert. Had two flights each with different take off. Had chance to take the controls for a short while. View spectacular but made by flying on the breeze with no engine noise.

Used an experience voucher for an extended gliding experience. Experienced aero tow, and winch launches, and got to take the controls on every flight. Instructor Ian was knowledgable, patient, and helped make a fantastic day.

Went here with a few friends on a Sunday morning with clear skies. An amazing experience. If you are in Cambridge for a few days, take the first half of the day to experience gliding. It's an experience second to none.

I had a voucher gifted to me for trial flights. I live locally, which proved very useful as the weather this year has been far from consistent. The Club is accessed several minutes' slow drive down the gravel road off the highway, and visitors are...More
