Gliding Club

ABOUT OUR CLUB 

Sydney Gliding is a small friendly gliding club that has been operating since the 1960s. The club operates from Camden Airport about 50 km from Sydney. All our aircraft are maintained to the highest standards and are kept in a hangar alongside the glider strip. Some members own their own gliders. The club is accredited by the Gliding federation of Australia (GFA).

We pride ourselves on over 50 years of safe flying.

 

GUIDELINES

There is a strict 100 kg weight limit for all Sydney Gliding aircraft. We reserve the right to refuse service to any one weighing more than 100kg or compromising the safety of our operation.

No refunds will be given.

You must be over 18 years of age to do this activity. No prior experience is necessary.

 

WEATHER

Gliding is weather dependant and operations may be cancelled or curtailed if the conditions are unsuitable or change during the day.

It is therefore essential that you call the club on 0412 145 144 at 9am on the day of your flight to confirm the weather conditions are suitable and that we are operating. If conditions are suitable the duty instructor will arrange a mutually convenient time with you or rebook for another day.

 Please be aware that the conditions often vary significantly between Sydney city and Camden.

 

VENUE

We operate from Camden Airport - approximately fifty kilometres south west of the city centre.

 

NUMBERS

Your briefing and flight will be one-on-one with an instructor, however spectators are welcome and there will be club members and other passengers on the airfield at the same time particularly on days with good weather.
