One of the largest and best equipped all-voluntary Gliding Clubs in the South East providing Gliding Experience Flights and Training
Our location adjacent to the scarp face of the South Downs and close to the south coast is perfect for soaring on the updraughts and lee waves from the Downs and riding the seabreeze fronts. We offer glider pilot lessons and Introductory Flight Packages for potential new pilots or those just wishing to experience the thrill of gliding.

We are pleased to announce that Southdown Gliding Club has re-opened and running with a COVID Secure operation within Government Guidelines. We are now training and taking Introductory Flight Bookings.

Membership offers a wide range of benefits from learning to fly to meeting new friends and just enjoying a very social day out at the club.
We are an all volunteer club and that means our instructors and tug pilots give their time for free to give you the opportunity to learn to fly.
At the end of the day and after the gliders are re-packed in the hangar it’s time to open the bar and discuss the days flying!
