Canterbury Gliding Club
Flying from Springfield and Omarama
"Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return"
Leonardo Da Vinci
Youth Glide Canterbury (YGC) is incorporated within the Canterbury Gliding Club. We believe that an early access to flight training provides an exciting opportunity to youth and can open doors to challenging aviation careers not available to the same extend anywhere else and bring in new members to the sport of gliding.
