Welcome to the Darling Downs Soaring Club

Gliding is an inexpensive way to learn to fly and is the most challenging of all aviation sports, involving skill, determination, discipline and tactics.  Want to try the thrill of gliding or perhaps you'd like to give someone a special gift?  Check out our Air Experience Flights.  Interested in joining the club?  Take a look at our fleet and facilities

If you want to find out more about gliding click on 'About Gliding' or 'About Us'. If you are interested in experiencing gliding, start with Air Experience Flights

Some features you may not see at other clubs:

  1. Full time students under 26 are able to fly at ½ price glider rates.
  2. We have an online booking system for our single seat aircraft and a training request system to help us effectively manage our pilots progress.
  3. We were the first club in Australia to fully equip our fleet of club gliders and tugs with ozFLARM collision avoidance aids.

Feel free to explore the members' area even if you are not a member. Some areas require a member's password.

Glider pilots from other clubs might like to look at our fleet, one of the best in the country for a non commercial club. Gliders are available at very reasonable cost.
