The Devon and Somerset Gliding Club is the largest gliding club in the South West and has allowed its members to enjoy the magic of gliding for more than 50 years. We have a modern fleet of club gliders, good club facilities and a team of BGA qualified instructors who provide training to help new members let slip the surly bonds of earth and dance the skies on laughter-silvered wings. The club is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, weekends and on public holidays.
We offer trial lessons and flying courses for the aspiring glider pilot, as well as conversion or advanced courses for experienced pilots. Whatever your skill level and flying experience, Devon and Somerset Gliding Club (DSGC) is the place for you, and the challenges and rewards keep on coming, whatever level you reach.
If you would like to take up gliding, or are looking for a thrilling day out, or an unusual gift, a trial lesson is an ideal introduction to this exhilarating sport.
Contact us to book a trial lesson on our usual flying days.
