16 December 2020: As we recover from the impact of COVID-19 on our operations in 2020, we are temporarily pausing new memberships for those who want to learn to glide. With our members keen to get flying again, and with the summer cross-country gliding season upon us, we want to ensure that we can both provide a good experience for our current members, and not discourage new student members when we have less capacity than normal. We will review the situation in mid-February 2021 and we hope to be able to welcome you soon!
If you are a current solo glider pilot, you can join by emailing us membership[at]melbourneglidingclub.com.au
There are many other fantastic gliding clubs in Victoria, and we encourage you to explore whether they will suit you. For example, at Bacchus Marsh, there are also the Geelong and Beaufort gliding clubs. To the south-east of Melbourne is the South Gippsland Gliding Club near Leongatha. Further to the west is the Grampians Soaring Club at Ararat. To the north is the Bendigo Gliding Club at Raywood, and the Gliding Club of Victoria at Benalla.
