‘SOARING!’ presents the history of the Auckland Gliding Club — celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.

Visitors will expand their knowledge of concepts such as lift, thermals, and the principles of flight. Follow the evolution of gliding, how gliders have been adapted for different uses, and view some stunning air-to-air images of gliders.

PLUS — a hands-on opportunity to experience the thrill of flying a glider! Take a short flight in a gliding simulator and truly experience the magic of gliding.

This exhibition will appeal to all ages with scale models of various gliders, fascinating film footage, and a collection of gliding artifacts.
