The Philadelphia Glider Council is a member owned and operated non-profit flight school composed of roughly 100 men, women, kids, and families drawn from all walks of life who are bound together by the love of soaring flight. We own a beautiful 125-acre private turf gliderport in Hilltown, PA (Bucks County) devoted exclusively to soaring. Our longest runway is approximately 3,000 feet long. In addition to the field itself we have hangars for the tow planes and Council gliders, private glider hangars, a tree shaded picnic grove, and field maintenance equipment.
(The video on this page was made by a member of a radio-control airplane club that had joined us for a special open-house event. He gives a pretty good description of the Council but re-names us a bit... a forgivable error in light of his nice review of the day.)
