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.

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.

  • New News Page. Instead of the long lost club newsletter, we'll have a crack at having a news feed on our website so club members and anyone interested can keep a breast with the latest. It will up right up there in quality with Stuff, Facebook, and Trump's tweets. If you want to place any news (which you are most welcome) then contact your loving club Secretary. He has the secret e-mail address to Captain Sink who has generously volunteered to be the editor for the Nelson Lakes Gliding Club's online news.
