Bristol & Gloucestershire GC

The BGGC is a well-established club with a 100-acre airfield on top of the beautiful Cotswolds overlooking the Severn Valley.  We fly in ridge lift, wave and thermals using winch and aero tow. The club offers seven-day operation in the summer with a resident instructor, and in the winter we fly on suitable days. There is a range of courses from Holiday Courses for beginners, or Intensive Training weeks for those with some experience through to Master Classes for cross country pilots. New members, visiting pilots and gliders are welcome.
