Club History

The Devon and Somerset Gliding Club (DSGC) was inspired by a group of friends who met in 1952 and flew for the first time from Dunkeswell aerodrome in 1957.  August 11th was our official opening day and in between heavy rain squalls most of the founder members had their first flights in the T-31.

Find out more about the DSGC history by reading the extracts from the BGA's Sailplane and Gliding (S&G) and early recollections from a past President.
