WELCOME TO THE HUNTER VALLEY GLIDING CLUB

Imagine harnessing the power of nature to soar high across the countryside at speeds of over 250kph in an engine-less aircraft.

 

Try your hand at gliding and you will discover the possibilities of this truly amazing adventure sport.

Gliding uses the same naturally occurring currents of air that birds use to fly, you too can take to the skies and enjoy this exhilarating experience, no matter what your age, physical ability or background.
