Save Our Airfield
Learn more about how you can help secure the future of Bicester Airfield for gliding!
Based at Bicester Airfield, just north of Oxford, Windrushers is the premier gliding centre in Oxfordshire. The club is open to anyone interested in learning to glide.
Bicester Airfield has been an active airfield for over 80 years - one of
Oxfordshire's very first airfields!
Gliding started here in 1956 with Windrushers Gliding Club and has continued ever since.
Our club fleet of gliders includes two-seater gliders with dual controls for training beginners (all lessons are with qualified gliding instructors), and single-seaters for use by those who reach solo standard. And yes, almost everyone who takes up the sport of gliding goes solo - if you can drive a car, you can fly a glider!
We have been awarded a grant by Sport England to help purchase a new winch. More news will be added when the winch is on site.
Update: The winch has arrived and is now in use.
Two university gliding clubs are now co-located at the Bicester Gliding Centre, while a third one sends a small number of its members here too.
