WELCOME

Welcome to Gympie Gliding. The club has around fifty members of which the ages of these members vary greatly from 15 to 80. Anyone over 15 can fly solo, after training of course. It is possible to do your training while you are 14 and go solo on or after your 15th birthday, as a number of people at the club have done. If you are a visitor you will be able to fly in the front seat of one of our two seat gliders. A qualified instructor will give you an Air Experience Flight (AEF). This will give you your first taste of gliding.

The Gliding Club operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays. However if it's raining or very overcast then there will probably be no gliding on that day. The middle of the day is the best time to go flying however on a busy day it's first come first served. The best time to arrive is about eight to nine o'clock, at this time you will be able to see the gliders being inspected and prepared for the days flying. Gliding usually finishes in the afternoon when the heat starts to die off, though this time changes throughout summer and winter. See also the Club Agenda on left of page for details of any special events we have planned and our regular flying days.



ENJOY




Noosa, one of Queensland's premier tourist destinations, is only forty minutes away by road. Make a day of it. Soar with the eagles in the morning and spend the afternoon at Noosa enjoying the fine foods and wines at any of the Hastings Street Bistros. What a way to spend a day or even a weekend. A qualified instructor can give you an Air Experience Flight (AEF). This will give you your first taste of gliding. The Gympie Gliding Club also offers gift vouchers for Air Experience Flights. These are great value and start from as low as $120 for a winch launch. These can be used on any club flying day.
