London Gliding Club

adrenaline

Accelerate from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds on a winch launch.

Race around the sky, exploring the far reaches of the country, all without an engine.

Flaunt the national speed limit, get endless enjoyment, and excellent thermals from flying over traffic jams.

Defy gravity, and stay airborne for hours on end.

Pull the Gs with extreme unlimited class aerobatics.
