Surrey Hills Gliding Club

The Surrey Hills Gliding Club Ltd (SHGC) has been operating from Kenley since 1985 and is owned and operated by the members. We share the airfield with 615 Volunteer Glider Squadron (VGS), who have use of the airfield on weekends and some weeks during school holidays. Surrey Hills Gliding Club operates Monday to Friday.

The club is affiliated to the British Gliding Association, the sport’s governing body, and all our training is given by BGA approved instructors. All flights are made as members of the club, with temporary membership and trial lessons available.

Their current club fleet comprises two two seat and three single seat gliders. Experience what it’s like to fly in the footsteps of the pilots of the Battle of Britain in the video below.
