The Surrey Hills Gliding Club Ltd (SHGC) has been operating from RAF Kenley Aerodrome since 1985, and is owned and operated by the members. The airfield is owned by the MOD and is used by two RAF units, 2 FTS (Flying Training School) and VGS (Volunteer Gliding Squadron), who are the primary users, with Surrey Hills Gliding Club operating on weekdays at times of spare capacity.
The club is affiliated to the British Gliding Association, our 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 to help you get started.
We are always delighted to welcome visiting pilots to SHGC, however, if you are planning to land at RAF Kenley as part of a cross country flight then please be advised that landing at RAF Kenley is strictly PPR via 2 Flying Training School at RAF Syerston (01400 264526) unless, of course, the landing is an emergency landing.
Surrey Hills Gliding Club is a winch only site and our current club fleet comprises two dual seat training aircraft and three single seat gliders for those members that have progressed to solo flying.
