Parked gliders, Bicester Airfield, Oxfordshire

About Us

Based at Bicester Airfield, just north of Oxford, Bicester Gliding Centre is the premier gliding centre in Oxfordshire. The club is open to anyone interested in learning to glide.

Bicester Airfield is located on the north east edge of Bicester - a prosperous and expanding north Oxfordshire commuter town. The airfield was established in 1917 as an RAF station and apart from a short break between 1920 and 1928 has been in continuous operation ever since. It is a remarkable grass-surfaced airfield - one of the largest remaining in Europe, which bears testament to the military history of the twentieth century with well preserved 1920s and 1930s hangars, a unique 'Fort' type control tower and a pre-World War Two bomb store - all English Heritage listed buildings.

As the largest open space in Bicester, it is home to a variety of wildlife and bird species, it was also designated a conservation area by Cherwell District Council in 2002. In 2012, the Council restated this in their 30 year plan.

The aims of the Bicester Gliding Centre are:
