THE GLIDING HERITAGE CENTRE - HOME

Preserving the History of Gliding in Great Britain

Steinadler Glider Enters Hangar

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 Gliding Heritage Centre is open for visits all year round, though we run regular tours on Sunday afternoons. Weather permitting, we try to fly some of our gliders on the first Sunday of each month, please see our visits page for more details.

Bring the Scott Viking 1 to the Gliding Heritage Centre!

The Scott Viking 1 represents the pinnacle of pre World War II British glider design, we believe that it must become part of the GHC collection. Click HERE to discover how to help make this happen.

What is it like to go flying in a vintage glider?
