Welcome to The Derbyshire & Lancashire Gliding Club
Next Up .... The Last Course of 2014
8th Septembr sees the last of this year's beginners courses. This is a 5 day ( 6 night) residential course designed to get you flying fast. This is an extra date added due to heavy demand and there are only three places left. Click Here for more details, or call our office on 01298 871270 to book
And Finally .... Girls Go Gliding.
September 13th is a day dedicated to women. All of our ladies will be on hand to talk about their own experiences in this magnificent sport and what they (and you) can expect to achieve. Unfortunately, all of the available flying slots are fully booked but you are most welcome to come along and check out our club and its facilities. Breakfast is served from 8:00am and at the end of flying there will be our "End of Summer" curry evening. Call our office on 01298 871270 for full details. Even if you cannot make this one, we are opening a waiting list for the next - which we hope will be in the spring of 2015. Alternatively, get in touch and arrange a flight on another day as, weather permitting, the club flies all year round.
Never flown anything other than as a passenger on a commercial flight? You're in for a treat. After some ground tuition, you will be taken aloft by one of our BGA approved instructors and given the opportunity to handle the controls of the aircraft as you soar the Derbyshire countryside. This is NOT a joy ride. This is a true flying lesson with full hands on tuition. A great introduction to what could turn into a very addictive pasttime ..... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Camphill is just the place for you to experience the magic of glider flight - to actually soar like a bird over the Derbyshire countryside.
Camphill is a hill top gliding airfield flanked by ridges on the west side and to the south. The airfield is 3/4 mile long North-South and 600 yards wide East-West. It is an all grass airfield with a well kept smooth surface. There is a hard core perimeter track for easy access to all parts of the airfield.
Converted from the buildings of Camphill Farm, a Derbyshire hill farm - the clubhouse provides excellent facilities by normal gliding club standards. Bar, dining room, lounge/clubroom, TV, email, etc.. Why not learn to fly fast on one of our 5 day residential Gliding Holidays. Gliding Holiday Courses are an excellent way to accelerate your learning. You are immersed in club activities from the moment you arrive until the last minute of your final day.
