Mile High Club

The latest members of the Mile High Club are experiencing fantastic flights, whilst soaring in two seat gliders, over a mile high above some of our most prestigious and world renowned landmarks.

Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Cerne Giant are just some of the wonderful highlights that can be seen. Glider flight is smooth and serene with outstanding visibility; flying sometimes at cloud base and sometimes between the clouds, before starting the long descent.

Dorset Gliding Club at Bovington, have added the Mile High Flight to their existing range of aerial experiences and regard it as the best on offer anywhere in the South.

Being towed to an altitude of 5,280ft behind the tug aircraft and then released for your epic flight is one of those bucket list items you can at last tick off.

Priced at £250 it makes a wonderful gift to mark an important milestone in the life of someone you know.

Dorset Gliding Club's New Tug Aircraft

G-ODGC


Dorset Gliding Club’s brand new Eurofox has now entered service, providing aerotows for our members and visitors enjoying air experience flights.

 The Eurofox is a modern and efficient platform for the club.  The new tug aircraft provides good climb rates whilst towing gliders.  The modern water-cooled Rotax engine allows rapid descent back to the airfield reducing turn around times between launches, and also gives much more fuel and cost efficient operations.

 The modern engine together with the “DUC Windspoon” propeller, has resulted in a quieter aircraft, which is important for the environment and the local residents.

 The Eurofox operates on a permit to fly issued by the Light Aircraft Association.  This aeroplane is becoming a firm favourite amongst gliding clubs, with more than a dozen examples now flying as tug aircraft in the UK.  The aircraft was financed entirely by the club's members, and promises to allow them to pursue their sport of soaring over the beautiful Dorset countryside for the foreseeable future.

 The club is always pleased to see visitors, both those new to gliding and reciprocal members from other gliding clubs. We look forward to welcoming you!
