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!
Bicester Gliding Centre were very pleased to have been awarded a substantial grant from Sports England to help purchase a brand new Skylaunch winch. The new winch has greatly improved our launch rate over the last year to the benefit of our members.
Bicester Gliding Centre is one of a number of clubs accredited by the British Gliding Association as a Junior Gliding Centre and actively promotes gliding for the young via our Cadet and Junior membership programme.
Oxford University Gliding Club are co-located with us at Bicester with over 50 members.
