Introduction to soaring and general flying videos from a Bicester member and look at the airfield!

Bicester Airfield has been an active airfield for over 80 years - one of Oxfordshire's very first airfields!
Gliding started here in 1956 with Windrushers Gliding Club and has continued ever since.

Our club fleet of gliders includes two-seater gliders with dual controls for training beginners (all lessons are with qualified gliding instructors), and single-seaters for use by those who reach solo standard. And yes, almost everyone who takes up the sport of gliding goes solo - if you can drive a car, you can fly a glider!
