Preserving the history of gliding in Great Britain.
most other gliding nations of the world, Great Britain did not until
recently, have a centre for vintage gliding. This has now changed and
the first phase in the development of the Gliding Heritage Centre at
Lasham is complete. The
Chris Wills Memorial Hangar was officially
opened on 4th August 2013. It houses a collection of vintage gliders,
many of which can be seen in the air on flying days.
The primary aim of the Gliding Heritage Centre is to preserve our
British gliding heritage and make it accessible to the public. It is
an educational resource where visitors can learn about the history of
gliding and the more general aspects of gliding as a sport.
Gliding Heritage Centre is a registered charity (Charity No.1148972).
The Chris Wills Memorial Hangar was officially opened on Sunday 4
The Gliding Heritage Centre is now open for visits. The best time to
visit is on Sunday afternoons although it is also possible to see the
collection during the week. Weather permitting, we try to fly some of
the gliders on the first Sunday of each month. Please
contact us to
arrange a visit.
