CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) updated 29/03/2021

We are now allowed to start recreational solo flying again. However, dual flying is not permitted to re-start until at least 12th April. At this point, we will have to repeat what we did after the first lockdown last year, and concentrate on getting our members current again. After this we will be in a position to fly voucher holders, hopefully from early May.

We thank you for your continued patience and look forward to seeing you soon. Please keep an eye on this page for further updates nearer the time.

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, 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.
