New Members

The University of Nottingham Gliding Club accepts new members at any point throughout the year. Find all the important details on this page.

Who can join?

Anyone can learn to fly with us. We offer some of the most affordable flying in the country, with flights starting from just £6 and free instruction provided. All training is done on an individual basis, an instructor will guide you through the flying syllabus, giving you all the information and training you need to eventually fly solo. There is no deadline for when you should start, the club can be joined at anytime!

How do I join?

The first step is to come to one of our introductory meetings where we will show you how much fun gliding is and can also answer any questions you may have. After you have attended one of these sessions you can signup for flying.

You can attend any of the sessions below:

  • Tuesday 05/11/2019 at 7:30pm – A31 in Sir Clive Granger
  • Tuesday 19/11/2019 at 7:30pm – A31 in Sir Clive Granger
  • Tuesday 03/12/2019 at 7:30pm – A31 in Sir Clive Granger

We fly every weekend throughout the year, taking up to 10 people each day. During busy periods (Welcome Week) there will sometimes be a backlog, however most of the time you can fly as often as you like.

How much does it cost?

Our annual membership is just £65, which covers the cost of insurance and ongoing maintenance of our two club aircraft. For this reason, membership is required before you can fly with us. A membership can be purchased from the SU webpage. A full breakdown of our prices can be found on our prices page.

Facebook

The majority of our communication is done through the Facebook group which you can join to stay up to date with club news and ask any questions you may have. We will advertise introductory meetings and other trips in this group.
