Ulster Gliding Club

Founded in 1930, the Ulster Gliding Club is the sole gliding facility of Northern Ireland set in beautiful Bellarena on the shore of the Lough Foyle. We are a friendly, supportive group of aviation enthusiasts and newcomers are always welcome.

With a rich offering of programmes and activities, our aim at the Ulster Gliding Club is to promote the sport of gliding in Ireland by making it as accessible as possible to all interested individuals. We provide quality instruction at all levels, and encourage our members - be they aspiring or accomplished pilots - to strive for excellence.

 

Our Partners in Aviation
The Ulster Gliding Club is a member of the British Gliding Association (BGA). We often take part in joint activities with Dublin Gliding Club, our sister club in the Republic of Ireland. Our nearest airport is Eglington (City of Derry).
