CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) updated 17/09/2020

We are operating a limited amount of trial lessons and silver courses. When booking your visit, please give your voucher number and a contact phone number. Only the person flying and one other will be able to go to the launch point. Others in your group will have to stay by the clubhouse. These courses maybe affected again if Covid 19 rules change.

ALL other visitors, for the time being, please stay away from the club.

Please Note: You are still able to buy trial lesson flights and silver courses and we will fly you just as soon as we can. To anyone who has already purchased one of these courses, rest assured that we will extend the expiry date and you will not lose out. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

If you have any concerns about this please call Andrew on 07887 726509 or Al on 07766 704801


 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.
