More about the day


This club is perfectly placed for breathtaking gliding over the picturesque Hampshire Downs. Nestled between Basingstoke and Alton, this top-notch gliding club is based at Lasham arerodrome, which was built for the Royal Air Force in 1942 and adopted as a home for gliding in 1950.

For all gliding vouchers, one month's membership of the club is included, enabling you to buy additional flights at a discount – this could be the experience to put you on the pathway to obtaining your licence to go gliding solo in the skies.

What's included?
