Welcome to the Auckland Gliding Club

Located 45km south of Auckland City in the heart of lifestyle countryside with a 1km well-kept grass airfield, the Club provides trial flights for beginners and full pilot training, from novices through to advanced cross-country racing, within a relaxed social atmosphere. To advance the soaring skills of anyone from youth trainees through to experienced power pilots we have a modern aircraft fleet, a panel of highly-experienced instructors and launch capabilities that are usually available every flying day through our roster and booking systems.

If you are a visiting pilot you are most welcome to join us for a day, week, or month. You will need to bring your logbook plus proof of membership of your national aeroclub (for overseas pilots) and we can clear you to go soaring over Auckland!

All our members give their time on a voluntary basis so the flying costs are kept to a minimum, this ensures that everybody can have the opportunity to enjoy the experience of learning to fly.
