An exciting new campaign is being launched by a Lincolnshire gliding club to encourage more people to discover gliding.

Trent Valley Gliding Club, based at Kirton in Lindsey airfield, is one of 11 gliding clubs across the UK to be involved in the first-ever ‘Glide Britain’ campaign, which uses a series of short films to share the experiences and passions of men and women who go gliding to encourage more people to give the sport a try.

Instructor at Trent Valley Gliding Club, Dave Bieniasz, said: “The Glide Britain film is just fantastic. It shines a spotlight on what gliding is all about and is an excellent introduction to the exhilarating pastime and sport that is so much more affordable and accessible than people think.”

The series of films were produced by award-winning film maker, Ben Jacobson, in collaboration with volunteers from Glide Britain, gliding clubs and the British Gliding Association.

Dave added: “Our club is now available for the world to see on Glide Britain’s YouTube channel and we are hopeful our enthusiastic members of all ages, abilities and backgrounds will inspire and attract others to go gliding and become hooked on flying, just like us.

“It’s the perfect way to get active, make friends with like-minded people and have great fun, which is what gliding is all about.”
