About Us

We are a small friendly club enjoying some of the best conditions and scenery in the country. Although small, we are a well established club – we’ve been gliding from Usk for over 25 years.

Contrary to what most people think gliding isn’t about flying around the field for 5 minutes, in good conditions a well flown glider can go very high or a long way. Several flights of over 500 km have been flown from Usk and the club height record is over 30000 feet.

  • CORONA VIRUS NOTICE

    As of 1st of June limited flying has restarted in line with government guidance.

    Club access is restricted to members only. Until circumstances change, we ask visitors not to come to the airfield.

    The validity of Trial Lesson vouchers will automatically be extended for a period equivalent to the period of Government self-isolation recommendation. Beyond this we will do our utmost to honour valid vouchers with mitigating circumstances.

    Members are requested to comply with government isolation and hygiene recommendations. Keep safe and well.

  • Who Goes Gliding?

    Gliding is not an elitist sport, quite the opposite, virtually anyone can have a go. Generally if you are capable of driving a car then you should have no problem learning to flying a glider.

  • Operating Times

    We operate club flying at weekends throughout the year. However, on a good soaring day during the week you will probably find a launch is available.
