Derbyshire and Lancashire Gliding Club
...does what it says on the tin
Camphill is just the place for you to experience the magic of glider flight - to actually soar like a bird over the Derbyshire countryside.
Camphill is a hill top gliding airfield flanked by ridges on the west side and to the south. The airfield is 3/4 mile long North-South and 600 yards wide East-West. It is an all grass airfield with a well kept smooth surface.
Converted from the buildings of Camphill Farm, a Derbyshire hill farm - the clubhouse provides excellent facilities by normal gliding club standards. Bar, dining room, lounge/clubroom, TV, email, etc.
You've never tried gliding before? Then Camphill is just the place for you to experience the magic of glider flight - to actually soar like a bird over the Derbyshire countryside. You would be taken by a British Gliding Association qualified instructor for a glider flight in a two seat glider. Usually we can let you feel what it is like to use the controls, (that's if you'd like to try), to fly in level flight and turn.
We cannot guarantee how long your flight will last - that depends on the weather conditions - it could be up to 15 minutes. We give you long enough to get a real taste of what gliding is like.
You'll become a temporary member of the club for 3 months. During this time you can fly twice more - paying lower charges as a club member.
If you decide on the day of the trial flight that you want to join the club as a flying member, you get a big discount. And you will get a certificate to prove you had a glider flight at Camphill!
