Kent Gliding Club runs a Community Flying programme during the weeks from April to September each year.
Its aim is to provide flying opportunities to all, but in particular to disabled and disadvantaged people in Kent and beyond.
One of our K21s has been modified with a removable hand operated rudder control: this enables students and passengers with restricted or no ability in their lower limbs to operate the rudder
The administrator of the Community Flying programme at the Club can be contacted initially via the Club's email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A typical Community Flying 'Day' involves up to six youngsters and their carers arriving for either a morning or afternoon flying session. After a full safety briefing from a senior instructor, the group makes its way out to the launch point where modern two seat gliders and a team of volunteer Kent GC members will be waiting for them. Generally, all the group will enjoy an aerotow followed by a winch launch, or vice versa.
