We are the Gliding Club of Akureyri established in 1937.
Our club has now been in operation for 79 years and we are proud of our heritage and trying to keep up with changing environment, regulations, new possibilities in flight and to maintain a gliding club in these very northern regions of the world.
Currently our club only operates a Super Dimona HK-36 TC, a powered Touring Motor Glider (TMG) that is operational as a conventional motor plane as well as a sailplane once the motor is turned off. The plane has two seats, one for the pilot and another for a student or passenger.
Our motor glider gives us possibilities to fly all over Iceland to experience our great country from the air. Or if you prefer to experience a silent flight with the motor turned off we can fly in the mountains in Eyjafjörður using the winds and the energy of the sun to lift us up and fly for a long time when the conditions are right.
We welcome foreign glider pilots, TMG pilots, PPL pilots as well as all flight enthusiasts from around the world with open arms. If you are interested in a flight in Northern Iceland then contact us and we will try to make it happen.
The club is located in Akureyri Airport but we do not have a regular schedule for flying so flights must be booked with one of our instructors or members.
