Canterbury Gliding Club

Please update your Bookmarks and go to our new website

Gliding is the ultimate free flying experience. It is a truly diverse sport that can be enjoyed at all levels: from the thriving club scene, to aerobatics, to the international racing competitions.

Gliding is a sport for all ages - the youngest person to fly solo in New Zealand was 12, and there is no upper age limit.

The Canterbury Gliding Club has a Youth Glide section, where younger pilots can fly with significant discounts to the regular prices.

"Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return"

Leonardo Da Vinci
