This is your opportunity to get involved.

If you still need convincing to join OUGC, check out this video…

Joining OUGC is very easy. You don’t need any experience, much money (see costs), or a lot of time. Plus you will have an adventure of your life, and enjoy other membership benefits.

It's not too late to join! Fill out and return the membership form on the website, or contact a committee member!

 

The best way to join is to come along to one of our events and fill out a form on the spot. That way you can most easily find out who we are, and we’d be happy to assist you with any questions you might have! Our socials are listed on our Facebook group and advertised on our mailing list.

The main sign-up events are our intro evenings during Michaelmas terms- come along to talk to us and our instructors, enjoy free wine and sign up for your intro session.

Alternatively, you can join us by filling out the membership form and delivering it via Pidge Post / Email to our membership secretary and treasurer (membership@ougc.org). Then make sure to pay your membership fee as well (see costs for details).


Membership benefits

 

By joining OUGC you become a member of Windrushers Gliding Club at Bicester Airfield for one year (1st October- 30th September), and enjoy cadet flying fees (see costs).

OUGC members can fly gliders from both the club fleet and the Windrushers fleet.

Instruction is free - you will be taught how to fly until you reach solo standard (and after that too).

We run expeditions between terms.

Ab initio pilots who complete 30 flights can apply for an OUGC Gliding Bursary worth up to £200!

Once qualified, OUGC members can fly the club's Grob Astir, FEF, for only £0.15 per minute.

Plus enjoy discounted entry to our famous socials throughout the year.
