Check out the New Zealand Club Class Nationals, which will be held at Drury in January 2015


Located 45km south of Auckland City in the heart of Lifestyle country, the Auckland Gliding Club provides trial flights and pilot training from novice through to advanced cross-country flying and racing.

In addition to trial flights for beginners, we provide full training with our panel of highly-experienced instructors. Our roster system ensures that instructors are available every day to teach the skills of soaring to anyone from a teenager through to experienced power pilots with thousands of hours experience.

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 and proof of membership of your national aeroclub (for overseas pilots). Once you're cleared we have a great fleet of modern ships for you to fly!

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.
