the Ulster Gliding Club is the sole gliding facility of Northern Ireland set in beautiful Bellarena on the shore of Lough Foyle.

Recent restrictions imposed by government mean that the Ulster Gliding Club will be suspending operation from Sunday 22nd March 2020 until those restrictions are lifted. Flight Vouchers which would expire during that suspension will have their expiry dates extended by whatever period we are obliged to remain closed. Updates will be posted to our Facebook page.
