London Gliding Club

learning

Becoming a glider pilot is easier than you think. All instruction is handled by trained and qualified instructors using the best training equipment available. This ensures consistent, and rapid progress.

Following national training standards, a pilot who learns at LGC will be confident of flying and landing anywhere. Mastering the basics isn't the end of the sport either; advanced cross country and aerobatics training are readily available.

Most of learning to fly gliders is done in the air. When you are ready this is reinforced with courses covering aerodynamics, weather, air law, and radio techniques.
