Buckminster Gliding Club

COVID-19 Update: The club is currently not accepting voucher flights. We are still allowing new members to join us and will provide training flights for them. If you are interested please get in touch via the contact details on our website (click here).

Membership is open to all at Buckminster, no previous experience required. We fly seven days a week (weather dependent) from our home at Saltby Airfield, located between Grantham and Melton Mowbray. Training is provided in our three two-seater gliders and both winch and aerotow launches are available. We also have a motor glider available for training or private hire by members and host a micro-light school on site. Our concrete runway means the club can stay open throughout the winter.

We can facilitate BGA vouchers in addition to our own vouchers/memberships, details of which can be found on our website. Discounted membership fees are available for any Junior members (aged 25 or under). We are also incredibly proud to host the gliding club from Loughborough University (LSUGC).
