Glider clubs in Melbourne, Australia

Hi guys,

I'm moving to Melbourne soon and I was wondering if anyone knows of any glider clubs. I haven't managed to find any on the net. I also want one that lets electrics fly as well.

Marty

Hi marty

VARMS is the big one. They fly everything electric and Glidery there. Seems like a very good club, although I haven't been a member. The downside is its a long drive from the central city area (well, from where I used to live, anyway).

There are quite a few others around but they are mostly power plane focused.

I know a few guys who head off every other weekend for slope soaring who I could put you in touch with - they fly electric up at the slopes when the wind is down to. Sloping is the best if you ask me.

I'm living in dublin at the moment but I'm from melbourne if your wondering about the location on my avitar.

regards

Andy
