Learn to Fly
or Just Come for an Experience
Whether you have always wanted to learn to fly or just want a once in a lifetime experience, come and fly in one of out two seater gliders with a fully qualified instructor.
All Trial Flights include two months of club membership (worth over £70.00) so that you can contine to fly at club rates.
Whatever you decide we will make you welcome. We aren’t known as the friendly Gliding Club for nothing.
Shenington Gliding Club
How we Operate
Shenington Gliding Club is run almost entirely by volunteers. Every member is expected to help. At weekends there is a rota so that there will always be at least: one Instructor to train members learning to fly and to fly Trial Lessons, a Winch Driver, someone to fly the tug aircraft, and people to run the launch point. Getting involved is part of the fun in gliding. It is a sociable sport like no other air sport and members become firm friends.
Gliding is cheaper than you think and once a member a winch launch costs £8.00 (£9.00 midweek) and the glider hire rate is £21.00 per hour including instruction.

What people say?
I was given a gift for a Glider Flight and chose to use my voucher at Shenington Glider Club. So glad because it was a brilliant day and experience the members and instructor were so friendly, welcoming and informative. I would definitely recommend this club for a Glider flight experience, thank you Shenington. G.C
Review on Google
What I really loved was the people; they all love gliding and try their best to help the visitor to love it too. They will obviously try to get you to join the club, but there is no hard selling or trying to raise money with photos, videos or other gimmicks. My daughter, who was along to watch, was kept entertained, and even drove the glider tug. Great atmosphere all round.
