Our web site has logged more than 30,000 hits in little more than a year, but probably needs a complete re-design in the near future.  Any member having ideas or expertise in this area please contact the Secretary. 

The Cairngorm Gliding Club has been operating from the Feshie Airstrip for 50 years. It lies in an area of outstanding natural beauty and breathtaking scenery on the edge of Cairngorm Mountains and the Spey Valley, 3 miles from Kincraig.

Feshie is an ideal soaring location with superb conditions for ridge, wave and thermal cross country flying.  We aerotow using our Robin DR400 tug to launch gliders into the best soaring areas.  Our average flight times are among the best, if not the best in the country.

Come visit us for a memorable experience and fly in the most beautiful scenic part of Scotland.  We look forward to seeing you!

 Meanwhile check out this new video from the Glide Britain team, which they made during the Inter Club League weekend in April 2018.


Deeside GC at Aboyne were the champions and we came in third place, partly it has to be said because we were unable to field a full team at the Aboyne meeting.

We still need more club members to get involved!  Even if you don't want to compete, volunteer crew and cheerleaders are always welcome, and visits to our neighbour clubs are always fascinating.  For those who may be unsure about what crewing involves, Phil has written the story of the Portmoak weekend in 2017 from the crew's perspective.

The 2019 competition will be held at Easterton and Portmoak.  We need you there to support your club!
