Venture Motor Glider

NPPL-SLMG Training

We offer training in our ex-RAF Venture - an extremely strong and reliable machine that was used by the RAF to train Air Cadets to solo standard for many years. We are now fortunate enough to be able to offer all levels of training in this aeroplane.

For those of you already in possession of a valid pilot's licence, a motor glider rating is only a few hours flying away. Bronze & Silver C glider pilots can convert to an NPPL-SLMG in as few as 10 hours and we also offer conversions to SLMG for microlight and gyrocopter pilots.

We are a friendly club, operating throughout the year, and the virtually unrestricted airspace that surrounds the aerodrome offers you the freedom to develop your flying skills without being hampered by extensive air traffic.

If you have ever thought about combining the autonomy of a light aircraft with the pleasure of soaring in a glider, then motorgliding is the answer. Whether novice or experienced, power or glider pilot, our motor gliders can offer you the flying experience you are looking for.

For further details of any of this training, contact the club or come and chat to our motor glider instructors.
