As gliding is weather dependant people don't usually commit to driving out until they know the weather. This means that transport will only be announced 2-3 days before the trip. Some people have regular duties at the airfield and will provide pre-planned transport on those days. If the weather is good there is usually transport on most weekends.

When going out for a full day we usually leave around 8:30am and return at about 7:30pm. It is possible to book half day training slots.
We fly from Gransden Lodge Airfield, which is about 12 miles West of Cambridge. You can cycle to the airfield in about 1hr, or get a bus most of the way. We also organise frequent car trips out to the airfield.
