Gliding near Oxford

Oxford Airport does not host any gliding clubs or schools due to the level of powered aircraft traffic we see.   Certain powered gliders do fly into Oxford from time to time.  However nearby, there are several alternative locations to choose from including Weston-on-the-Green, Enstone and Bicester.   The nearest club is the Oxford Gliding Club at Weston-on-the-Green.

See our Flying & Gliding Clubs page for further information.
