  • Have a tour of the glider hangar and see the various types of gliders that are based at the Deeside Gliding Club.
  • Test your flying skill by piloting a full sized glider simulator.
  • Get hands on and build a balsa wood “chuck” glider and see how far it will fly.

The outdoor elements of the program might change if the weather is poor. We will contact you before the event to confirm your attendance. Numbers are limited and we would like to allow as many as possible to participate.
