Group bookings and corporate gliding activities

We are pleased to welcome groups, social clubs and corporate teams to Shobdon on week days, bank holidays or at weekends.

Maximum capacity is normally 12 persons/flights per day.


Flights take the form of a "Trial lesson" commencing with a ground briefing. During the flight the instructor will demonstrate the controls of the aircr aft and encourage you to "have a go" if you wish. Your flight includes 3 months Membership. We hope that you will wish to return to learn to fly.

Catering and facilities

The airfield has a canteen and bar. Snacks are available or we can arrange a buffet or hot meal for your group.


For groups of 4 or more we offer a 10% discount from our usual "Trial lesson" price. This includes an aircraft tow launch to 2,000 feet altitude . We can also arrange flights with a tow to 1,500 feet for a reduced cost.
