Gliding for All

The current Covid lockdown means that we can’t fly and that the clubhouse is shut.  When the lockdown lifts we will be soaring again (last time we had gliders safely airborne withing 18 hours of the easing of restrictions). 

The office IS working remotely, vouchers (valid 12 months from when flying restarts) are for sale.  Contact enquiries@kentglidingclub.co.uk

If you are visiting (as pilot, member, trainee or guest) then you MUST read, understand and adhere to our covid  procedures. Click here.

We offer a range of Exciting Gliding Experience options to the public . Click on the link for more details.

Kent Gliding Centre is operated by Kent Gliding Club Ltd which is affiliated to the British Gliding Association

Our 200+ acre airfield is set in beautiful countryside on top of the North Downs (above looking south-east towards the M20 and Ashford). This location, which the club owns outright, gives us access to excellent thermal soaring as well as ridge soaring all the way to Rochester when the wind obliges.  Our facilities include a modern clubhouse with office, briefing room, cafe, bar and comfortable accommodation.  We also have an on site maintenance facility, hangars, trailer parking and caravans. The club fleet consists of modern training and solo gliders available to all members.

Current membership stands at around 120 active pilots, of whom 20 are qualified BGA Instructors and a further 10 are tug pilots.
