The Club has about 40 members from around Victoria but mainly resident in north east Victoria and the Upper Kiewa valley. The Club also operates Astir and Pilatus B4 single seat gliders for solo flights. An ASK-21mi two-seat motor glider is also available on occasion. Club members also operate several privately owned gliders and motor gliders. Occasionally aerotow launches are also available.
The Club has several highly qualified and experienced instructors. Training is conducted to solo standard, and for advanced cross country and mountain flying technique. Flying members have to also be members of the Gliding Federation of Australia.
