The most recent addition to our fleet, the K21 is the K13's successor. Built of the same materials as the DG505, this aircraft ensures OGC is prepared for the future.
Our longest serving aircraft, CGO is loved by all who've flown her. She's been with OGC since the 70s thanks to the efforts of our dedicated inspector team.
DG505 Elan Orion
Our advanced cross country trainer, the DG505 "JSX" is used to teach advanced flying skills and is equipped with "moving map" GPS devices and flight computers.
A vintage, British built aircraft, Daisy is an open cockpit aircraft, and summer evenings in this aircraft are pure aviation at it's finest. Special trial flights available.
Similar in handling and feel to the K13, the K8 is a gentle aircraft that is easy for pilots to fly, and offers a friendly platform to develop their solo flying ability.
OGC owns two of these higher performance single seaters. Manufactured in Germany, they both feature moving map capability and flight computers.
Our fleet is maintained by our in-house inspector team, who work to the latest British Gliding Association standards. With hundreds of collective years of experience, they know every noise, every measurement and every little detail of all our aircraft. As with all gliders up and down the country, our aircraft are subject to rigorous safety inspections every year.
The gliders themselves are from varying eras of aviation history, and of different types of construction. From carbon fibre to steel tube and fabric. The different construction methods provide different characteristics, with each being perfectly suited to its role in the club.
