Welcome to Narrogin Gliding Club, the very best and friendliest place to enjoy gliding in the south west of Western Australia.
Located in rolling farmland in the heart of the Wheatbelt, Narrogin Gliding Club has a long history, a great location, well developed infrastructure and a good fleet. The Narrogin region produces big, reliable thermals in an interesting and varied but very safe soaring environment. A great place to fly!
We’re situated at Narrogin airfield, just 12km to the west of the town of Narrogin, which is within an easy day-trip drive from Perth, Bunbury or Albany via major highways and good bitumen roads.
Narrogin is about 150km inland, so it is generally unaffected by sea breezes during the gliding day. On the other hand, it is also usually beautifully cool at night no matter how hot it has been during the day, and its distance from town makes the night sky a magnificent sight. After a plus 40 degree day there is really nothing like standing out on runway 28 on a black, moonless night with the glow of Narrogin town on the eastern horizon, looking up at the cold beauty of the Milky Way stretching out above you in a way that can never be seen from the backyards of Perth.
We’re a club, which means costs are kept to a minimum but our facilities are excellent and our fleet is comprehensive. We operate every weekend and public holiday, plus extended periods during the soaring season for special events like training courses and flying events. Check our Events Calendar for details. For the latest news check our NEWS page or on Facebook.
Flight training is available every day that we operate. Two one-week training courses are run every year, one at Easter and one in October, which are always popular and well attended. Air experience flights are actively supported. We enjoy flying our visitors and we try our best to show them as good a time as we can.
Want a weekend break with a warm welcome and some of the best flat lands gliding in the country? That’s what Narrogin Gliding Club does best.
We love visitors and we’d love to see you. Check us out, give us a call or drop in.
