Dartmoor Gliding Society is a small but very friendly club located on picturesque moorland in beautiful South Devon within sight of the very well known Brentor Church.
Our club was founded in 1983 by a small group of enthusiasts with a twin-seat open-cockpit glider with a wooden hut to keep it in and a lot of energy to carve out a runway on the top of Burnford Common.
From these humble beginnings the club has steadily progressed to become the thriving gliding community it is today. The club now boasts a well-cared for grass runway, a refurbished club house and a purpose built hangar to house the club fleet of three twin-seat training gliders and three single-seat gliders.
Launching is by winch only. The site offers good thermal soaring and , when the wind is in the east, wave to heights in excess of 16,000 feet right off the end of the wire.
