Booker Gliding Club
Booker Gliding Club offers a range of courses from Introductory Flights for those who just want a taster of gliding to our Get Your Solo course for anyone looking to start on a new adventure. We have a PPL Conversion course for power pilots wishing to enhance their skills and we can also provide upset recovery training and aerobatics courses. We operate 7 days a week throughout the season, with bookable training. We also fly on summer evenings, until the sun sets. We accept group bookings, for example for family groups, or office outings – a good opportunity for team building.
All training is in two-seater dual control gliders with BGA qualified instructors. We launch by aerotow – the glider is towed into the air behind a power plane, the glider pilot chooses when to release from the tow.
After purchasing your lesson or course online at www.bookergliding.co.uk, we will send you details about how to book your chosen date for your flight or course and how to find us, and we’ll provide some additional information about gliding in general.
As part of being a Club, we like people to become involved in helping out, so if you come along on a course we’ll encourage you to help. This may involve retrieving the gliders on the airfield with our buggies, keeping the flying log and helping to launch the gliders. While not obligatory, help is always appreciated and it’s a good way to maintain a sociable, co-operative culture. This will all be supervised and you’ll receive training on what to do. It makes the day more fun for you and assists with the smooth running of the Club.
Come fly with us!
