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 with office, briefing room, cafe, bar and comfortable accommodation. 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.
