Part of LSU Societies we are the only club at Loughborough to offer affordable flying.The training is reasonably priced with the chance to become a solo glider piot in 3-6 months, but that's only the start, once a solo pilot you can progress your new found aviation skills further and train for aerobatics and cross country flying.

Members with cars offer lifts to the airfield at weekends and as a club we organise expeditions to other airfields throughout the year.

Round 2 of the Winter Series will be held at Sutton Bank Airfield in Yorkshire. This is a national event run by UK Junior Gliding. Where junior pilots from across the county come to fly from different sites. All pilots of any skill level are welcome. LSUGC will be taking some people down. If you are interested get in touch with the committee. Everyone had a really good time at round 1 in Denbeigh so hopefully we can get more people involved in round 2.

On Monday 9th Oct LSUGC will be holding an information evening in J002 EHB at 19:30, all are welcome to find out what gliding is about.

This is why we fly
