Gliding in the ATC has recently undergone a significant transformation. As of October 2016, regional gliding squadrons are being set-up to cater for cadet gliding. Our local gliding unit, 637 Volunteer Gliding Squadron (VGS) based at RAF Little Rissington in the Cotswolds has recently undergone renovation as a new RGS.

UPDATE - 01/03/2017

As of 2017 a new programme of gliding has been introduced. RAF Little Rissington will be a regional gliding center. Located at the site will be a simulator and Viking gliders. A new hanger and ops building have been built in the last year.

Please speak to a staff member about the new gliding scheme. More details will be posted on here shortly.
