Hi there,

Does anybody fly a glider in and around Warwickshire?

I am looking for a club so that I can have a try at it!

Nearest clubs to you are probably Bidford, Snitterfield, Shennington and Husbands Bosworth. Checkout the British Gliding Association's website for further details

I personally fly out of Hus Bos and can certainly recommend the club!

The BGA website has all the information you need to find a club - best move is to find the two or three nearest you and visit them all before committing:

Gliding near Warwickshire

Hi, Ben!

Check out Shenington! (just google it). Not too big, not too small, 7 days a week, lots of young people, Airtow and Winch, there is a nice ridge that works well in North to Northwest winds. And paved runways as well as grass means while other places get boggy, we don't.

Reasonable prices, as well. Like all good advice, check out a couple of places before you decide. But we are very handy for Warwickshire. You would be very welcome.
