Come gliding in the heart of Kent's most beautiful countryside and take a lesson or a trial glider flight. Situated within the private estate of the Earl of Guilford's Waldershare Park, the Channel Gliding Club has a unique position. With stunning views along the English coastline, and even across the Channel to France on a clear day, remember to bring your camera or video camera when you come to fly with us!

If you are local and would like to take up gliding then we welcome new members, it is not as expensive as you think. We are a small friendly gliding club offering a full range of facilities at very reasonable rates, please have a look at the Tariff page for more information. If you are looking for that special gift of a trial gliding lesson then you can book online - we can also cater for groups with special gliding evenings.

Trial lessons make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries or any special occasion.

The Channel Gliding Club offers winch launches using our two drum winch with steel cable. This gives us launch heights of anything from 1000ft - 1800ft. The club has three gliders, two dual-control training gliders and a single seater for when you go solo.

The Club also has several privately owned gliders owned by members who choose to purchase their own. By becoming a member of The Channel Gliding Club you get use of all club facilities.
