Adventure in the Eden Valley
What is Gliding?
Gliding is to fly gracefully and silently without the vibration and noise of an engine. Modern gliders are reliable and very strong - stronger than the equivalent sized power plane yet their slender wings allow them to glide smoothly, climbing in the air as it passes over the mountains. Most gliders have a single-seat (i.e. just carry a pilot) but we have two-seaters that allow you to fly with a BGA qualified instructor. Gliding can be as exciting and challenging as you want it to be and most people’s response is “wow, that was amazing!” so why not treat a loved one or have a look at our Trial Lesson offers, short courses or consider joining yourself.

"Wow - That was amazing!."
The short video below demonstrates the amazing views. Thanks to Joe Roberts from Cambridge University GC.
The Eden Gliding Club is a community amateur sports club, operated and run by volunteers. All of our instructors are BGA qualified with lots of experience. Why not come down, join in and experience for yourself what flying in the Cumbrian mountains feels like.

Good news - we have a second K13 joining the fleet in 2015. That should keep the queues to a minimum and ensure everyone gets plenty of soaring time. Ridge soaring tuition a speciality!
