Gliding used to be the sport in Europe that gathered all the flying enthusiasts. It is reasonable, needs a lot of teamwork, energy, discipline and willingness to give rather than take. Gliding in Europe contributed to a lot of great developments in aviation.
The use of modern material (like fiber glass, carbon fiber) and the enhanced knowledge about aerodynamics in gliders contributed a lot to the aviation industry.
The Philippines is a poor developing country. Lots of people are excited about flying, but will never be able to afford to learn how to fly. There will be a high demand for pilots in the next decades and gliding is a good start to get the basics in aviation.
My plan is to teach youngsters here at low costs.
Anybody interested in gliding can come and visit us. We operate mostly over weekends in dry season.
