Interested in trying gliding or learning to fly a glider? You've come to the right place! The Adelaide University Gliding Club welcomes everyone, not just those attending Adelaide Uni. We operate from Stonefield airfield - about 110km north east of Adelaide - most weekends and public holidays.

If you'd like to visit our airfield for an Air Experience Flight or to start your training, just ring or email our contact person on 0412 870 963 or contact@augc.on.net to book in. See the 'Come Gliding!' page for more information on what to expect.

The Janus Arrives

The Janus arrived at Stonefield on Saturday 15 July 2017. It is AUGC's new advanced trainer. Being a fibreglass two-seater, she's a bit heavier to rig than our other aircraft, which led to one wag dubbing her "the Janusoarus", a name that seemed to stick. Given the necessity to rig the Janus first, flying started a bit later than usual; but everyone who was at the airfield got a flight or two (except Peter Cassidy who helpfully flew some aerotows in the pawnee). It wasn't much of a soaring day, but Cath and Heath L managed a 34min flight in the Janus, the K13 did some training flights, and Nick Gilbert flew his Libelle. The day wound up with an excellent three course dinner of Mexican food and cheesecake, provided by Cathy Conway (thanks!).

New Club Glider

AUGC is pleased to announce our latest addition to the fleet, made possible by a generous donation from Simon Hackett through the Hackett Foundation. Simon has enabled the purchase of GVU - A Janus B from the Melbourne Gliding Club, Bacchus Marsh. We can now offer advanced training including cross country training. Conversions to the Pik will be easier now that we have a flapped two seat glider in the fleet. We also intend to field a team in the coaching division of Joeyglide - the Junior gliding nationals. If you would like to be part of this team please send us a message. The new glider will debut at Stonefield on 15 July 2017.

Flying 1 & 2 July 2017

Congratulations to Ben Carter for converting to the Motorfalke on the weekend.
