The Bristol & Gloucestershire Gliding club (BGGC) is one of the UK’s longest established gliding clubs. We own our airfield which is situated near the village of Nympsfield, between Stroud and Dursley. With a modern clubhouse, extensive club fleet and surrounding scenery offering terrific views over the Severn Valley the BGGC offers a combination of excellent facilities and a great site to fly from. Whether you are an experienced pilot looking for exciting cross-country possibilities, a trainee pilot looking to build your skills or a member of the public wanting to experience the pleasure of unpowered flight the BGGC can offer you what you are looking for.
BGGC members include current and past World Champions! From our airfield at Nympsfield, on the edge of the Cotswolds, pilots have flown to the Isle of Wight, Snowdon, Cornwall, Yorkshire and circumnavigated London. As well as excellent thermal flying we can offer over 100Km of usable ridges and the chance of  high altitude wave flights.
