 The Devon and Somerset Gliding Club is the largest gliding club in the South West and has allowed its members to enjoy the magic of gliding for 60 years. We have a modern fleet of club gliders, good club facilities and a team of BGA qualified instructors who provide training to help new members let slip the surly bonds of earth and dance the skies on laughter-silvered wings. The club is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

We offer trial lessons and flying courses for the aspiring glider pilot, as well as conversion or advanced courses for experienced pilots. Whatever your skill level and flying experience, Devon and Somerset Gliding Club (DSGC) is the place for you, and the challenges and rewards keep on coming, whatever level you reach.
