Welcome to The Derbyshire & Lancashire Gliding Club
Next Up .... 2015 - Happy New Year.
Well that crept up rather quickly. Where Did 2014 go? It was a really busy year for us at Derby and Lancs. From our highly successful Vintage Week and Girls Go Gliding Event (to be repeated this spring ... watch this space), to one of our senior instructors being the first of the new soaring year to join the 3 mile high club (19,000 ft above the stunning Peak District National Park.)
Whilst we can't guarantee to get you or your loved ones that high, we CAN guarantee you the experience of a lifetime. So if you are looking for a gift that's different for that special person in your life, check out our flying gift vouchers at this link. Remember, they are valid for 12 months so you can give the gift as a present and the recipient can come and redeem it in the spring or summer and enjoy a spectacular day out in the heart of the Peaks.
IF you've already had a taster flight and are considering taking up the sport, why not check out our membership offers here, or our residential beginners courses here
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.
