Where We Fly

UoN Gliding is affiliated with and flies at Cranwell Gliding Club, based at RAF Cranwell. We benefit from the use of the facilities and experience at Cranwell. In return, we offer our help running the airfield, maintaining the gliders, and of course providing a stream of eager students ready to learn to fly!

Cranwell Gliding Club is an RAFGSA club based at RAF Cranwell, near Sleaford in Lincolnshire. The members of Cranwell Gliding Club travel from all around the local area to fly there.

Set up in 1972, Cranwell Gliding Club aims to promote gliding to servicemen and women in the RAF, including those who don’t normally get the opportunity to fly, such as engineers and other ground staff. The club flies every Saturday and every Sunday from the North airfield at Cranwell. Many of the instructors that you will be flying with are ex-RAF pilots themselves, so you can be confident that you are receiving top-quality training!
