Kent Gliding Centre is operated by Kent Gliding Club Ltd which is affiliated to the British Gliding Association. Our mission is to enable as many people as possible to enjoy and participate in the brilliant sport of gliding in a safe and fun way.
Our 200+ acre airfield is set in beautiful countryside on top of the North Downs. 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, administration office, briefing room, bar, comfortable accommodation and parking. We also have an on site maintenance facility, hangars, trailer parking and caravan pitches. 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.
The Gliding Centre remains closed temporarily to casual visitors until further notice. If you would like to visit us to explore becoming a member please contact the office to make an appointment.
