 HGC operates from Easterton Airfield in the North of Scotland, about 3 miles south of Elgin, making it the most northerly gliding club in the UK. Thermal, ridge and wave flying.

With an excellent ratio of instructors to ordinary members, Highland has an outstanding training reputation and welcomes new members who are keen to take up the sport. We also encourage pilots to develop themselves to the utmost of their abilities, regardless of age or gender.
