Our club promotes glider flights for a number of reasons not just test flights in two seater gliders pilotted by an instructor. Often after an introductory flight many go on to choose to follow a course with us to get a pilot’s licence.

Alzate Brianza is a short distance outside of Como. The club operates at weekends and of course lights are dependent on the weather.
