The problems dèscribed by my wife (LindaP) were very frustrating and left a sour taste. However, it appears that the lack of communication was caused by a technical error and my visit went ahead. I am delighted to say that it was a wonderful experience!...More

First visited during June 2014 to begin a gliding scholarship course here. This club is very well organised and everybody is very friendly. The views from the air are fantastic - particularly over Beacon Fell and Parlick Hill.
