At Denbigh gliding is all about the waves the ridges and the thermals! We are offering gliding lessons and experiences in this unique Welsh setting where mountains coastline and castles are par for the course!
Choose from a 30-minute lesson a one hour tour taking in the castles and coast or a one and a half hour spectacular soaring over Snowdonia and beyond. All flights are operated by a motor glider which means there’s no waiting for a tow or a winch you just launch yourself. Once airborne over Denbighshire the motor can be turned off and the you can glide around the skies.
The Scheibe SF25C Falke is a German motorglider built specifically to be a tourer. Stable in the air and easy to fly it’s a real delight cruising the coast and countryside in this machine. If it’s your first time in a glider you’ll soon feel at ease and start taking in the wonderful surroundings to really enjoy your flight.
It all starts off green green green everywhere…then oh look mountains! Lleweni Parc offers direct access to the delights of Snowdonia National Park and we highly recommend the extended mountains experience to get the full epic tour. If weather conditions allow you’ll soar over the summit before heading west to the coast passing by the likes of Barmouth and Aberdovey to continue in-land towards Dolgellau and Cadar Idris.
Heading north out Lleweni puts you on the trail of some or Wales’s many castles. In a 60-minute flight you’ll see the likes of Denbigh Rhuddlan Gwrych and Conwy castles. All utterly breathtaking from the air as is the stunning coastline you’ll follow too. Book the Coast & Castles experience if you think this itinerary is for you.
For those wanting a more hands-on glider experience over Denbighshire go for the 30-minute lesson. As soon as it’s safe to do so your pilot instructor will hand the controls to you and it’ll be you flying the glider.
This part of the world boasts some unique conditions for glider flying including ridge runs the Snowdonia wave and incredible thermals which is why this Denbigh glider club exists. It’s run by passionate pilots who want us all to experience the wonders of gliding in such amazing conditions with an equally amazing backdrop.
