Learn to be a Pilot. Right Here. Right Now. In your own Backyard!

“…You can fly solo from age 15!”

The sport of gliding is an exhilarating, spectacular yet serene flying experience. Gliders take to the air like birds with wings outstretched, soaring on rising air currents, immersed in three dimensional space and flying silently with an eagle’s view of the world. Gliding can be enjoyed at your own pace to suit your lifestyle, budget and the amount of time that you have available. As a junior glider pilot you will be part of an Australian and worldwide club-based community which offers support, advice and training.

In Australia you can fly solo from the age of 15. Yes, that’s right.  You can fly a glider by yourself before you can drive a car!

The Gliding Club of Victoria located at the Benalla Airport aims to encourage young people into gliding by providing their YouthGlide program. This program offers reduced rates for flying and offers an opportunity for young people to consider a career in aviation by starting as junior glider pilots, and who knows, becoming world gliding champions, military pilots or airline pilots of the future!
