Gliding is a sport for all ages and from all walks of life including students, mothers, grandparents, entire families! Pilots as young as 15 until well into retirement can and do fly gliders solo. Our club offers flying training at all levels. Our instructors are fully qualified volunteers who are passionate about teaching others to fly a sailplane safely and competently. Whether you are interested in experiencing the beauty of nature from a different, quiet perspective, want to rely on your skills to fly long distances on just the power of the sun, are competitively minded and like to pit yourself against other pilots in racing competitions, or perhaps enjoy the thrills of aerobatics, the Balaklava Gliding Club has a fleet of modern, well maintained gliders to cater for all these purposes.
