Gliding in this area dates from the Itford Hill meeting in1922 and the club was originally located at Firle Beacon.

The present club was formed in 1974 as East Sussex Gliding Club Ltd is owned and operated by the members.

All the club's flying and management operations are carried out by the club members of which there are currently around 120.

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.

Our current club fleet comprises four two seat and four single seat gliders, with a motor glider available for basic and advanced intensive courses. There are approximately 30 privately owned gliders on the airfield.

We are among the few gliding clubs in the country to own our own airfield. We have a good clubhouse, with a social room and a bar, other facilities are available in our own workshops and two hangars.
