Gliding's home in Eastern England

Gliding is a form of flight that is both beautiful and exciting. Nothing can quite match the thrill of flying silently, giving you a birds-eye view over the surrounding countryside of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and beyond.

Cambridge Gliding Centre offers a full range of flying experiences, from trial flight gift vouchers to 5 day courses.

Always had an ambition to be a pilot?

We offer trial lessons that you can book online or over the phone. They make an ideal present with a choice of tow release height hence potential duration. The lucky voucher recipient can arrange a time for that lesson to suit themselves.
