Learn to fly on demanding and environmentally friendly aircraft: gliders.
Fly without an engine for hours, coverl great distances or fly for pleasure around your aerodrome, over the Alp glaciers or in the Great Plains of Eastern Europe.
Nature is the engine. It gives us the necessary energy, thanks to the thermal ascendances. In order to achieve such flights, we need solid flight experience and of course the glider pilot's license. The related courses are provided by the National Gliding School in Useldange.
CLVV has a complete infrastructure at your disposal and is happy to welcome you as an active member of our Gliding Club. Your dream of flying can come true.
