Darlton is a friendly, active gliding club, with members drawn from Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and beyond.

Our convenient and accessible location, situated between the A1 and A57 roads, makes us easy to find, and the club gives a warm welcome to all visitors.

DGC offer visitors trial lesson flights for those wanting to taste the sensation of soaring flight, or for those who are seeking a little more of a challenge, taking the first steps to understanding and controlling the glider, perhaps we can tempt you with a mini-course.

Come along to find out more about the sport of gliding, enjoy a trial lesson or mini-course, or simply watch the gliders flying.

We look forward to welcoming you and introducing you to the sport of gliding soon.
