Christmas Special for 2019

The Dublin Gliding Club has been teaching people how to fly for over 50 years and is Ireland’s largest gliding club. Located next to Punchestown race course we operate every weekend all year round, dependent on the weather. Call us now on 087 902 5023 for further information!

This Christmas we’re offering a package that’s a great gift for someone you love, or a perfect present for yourself. For €99 you get:

  • A voucher that they can open on Christmas day telling them about the package they now have.
  • A day with the club to enjoy the thrill of gliding
  • A full safety briefing with an instructor about the history of gliding in Ireland, how the aircraft work and how the airfield operates
  • A detailed walk around of the K21; the aircraft which you will be flying in
  • The chance to operate as one of the ground crew and assist with the club operations on the day
  • A flight to 3000ft with one of our Air Experience instructors who will take you through your first lesson as a club member, which will have a duration of about 25 minutes depending on the weather
  • After your flight you will automatically get 1 months club membership so that you can fly any weekend of your choice at club rates of €35 per fight, including instruction as often as you want

As we’re a club we place our focus on membership, and its due to our commitment to our members ongoing training that we’re able to offer the prices we do for our training. As we operate as a true club rather than as a for-profit flying school, our aim is to make our training as cost effective as possible for all of our members, including you. On the other hand, if you just want a single flight to experience the thrill of gliding that’s absolutely fine with us too!

Interested? Call one of our team now on 087 902 5023 and let them answer any questions that you have about the Christmas offer, or gliding in general. Do check out our FAQ first!

Alternatively you can order your voucher here online and we’ll arrange to get it to you before Christmas

We look forward to seeing you at the airfield!
