From very small beginnings in 2013, we have grown to having a collection of 47 gliders, of which 26 are in flying condition or can be made airworthy. We are also very fortunate to have 17 gliders owned by others, that are kept in GHC hangars. The majority of which are also airworthy.
Below is a list of all gliders at the Gliding Heritage Centre and whether they are on display From time to time they maybe removed from display for maintenance, restoration or to allow other gliders to be displayed, as space is at a premium.
