Come fly with us at The Gliding Centre - Husbands Bosworth Airfield.

Located on the beautiful Leicestershire / Northamptonshire border in the heart of the UK, The Gliding Centre (TGC) is one of the premier gliding clubs in the UK with more than 200 members, a first class fleet of aircraft, highly experienced instructor base and excellent ground facilities.

Whether you’re new to gliding, already learning to fly or an experienced pilot looking for a top class gliding club, you’ll be very welcome.

Gliding is a sport for all. Our members include pilots from 14 to 80+ years old from a wide range of backgrounds. Why not come and learn with us or simply give it a try? Once you’ve flown with us, you’ll understand what keeps us all coming back for more!

Visit our website for details and prices of our flights, vouchers and lessons. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable it can be to turn dreams into reality!

Many people buy trial flights and courses as birthday or Christmas gifts for friends or family. If you let us know when booking, we can send the voucher to the person of your choice. Why not consider also treating yourself to a Trial Flight or Training Course at the same time?

Come and give it a try! We look forward to meeting you.
