The Surrey Hills Gliding Club, based at Kenley Aerodrome, is the nearest Gliding Club to London and the only Gliding Club within the M25.

Surrey Hill Gliding Club offer trial flights for you to experience the thrill of gliding and enjoy the views of London .

The trail flights are single person for winch launched flights in a two seat fully dual-controlled glider with a BGA qualified instructor.

Flight duration is weather dependent and normally lasts between 5 – 10 minutes.

Gliding is an exhilarating sport offering people of all ages, except the very young, the chance to experience silent, powerless flight with a British Gliding Association instructor, seeing the world from a bird’s point of view.

You fly and soar using the same air currents that birds use to fly, with planes that have been designed with excellent aerodynamic efficiency.

Whilst visiting the Aerodrome it's worth taking the Kenley Airfield Heritage Trail around the airfield.
