Welcome ....... 

..... to the Nelson region's soaring club. Nelson Lakes Gliding Club is all about the sport of soaring in sailplanes, fast, sleek unpowered aircraft capable of great distance and heights.

What do we do?
Fly gliders! Gliding is one of the most exciting and accessible forms of recreational aviation. It is also one of the most unsung adventure sports in the world. 

Its challenging, its affordable and incredibly rewarding. 

 Our club flies most Saturdays from Lake Station. We have a fantastic soaring playground. We have thermal, convergence, ridge lift and wave lift which we reach from our cheap winch launch operation.

Also catch up what we're up to by reading the Blog and Facebook 

Our flying week this season will be from the 18th to 26th of February 2017. See you there. 


Where are we?

At Lake Station airstrip, 8km west of St. Arnaud. Just over one hour south of Nelson. Need directions? Here’s a map.
