LF Gliding Club
Lolland-Falster Gliding Club has existed for more than 60 years and currently has 36 active members who range widely in age, right from teenagers to senior citizens. There are stationed 8 gliders at Lolland-Falster Airport and if you look towards the sky you will see them hanging there above the airport until the end of October.
During the season we fly every weekend until the end of October, and in that time the members have plenty of time in the air just like they have lots of good times at the airfield at Holeby. In addition to flying at Holeby, the members of the team are happy to fly to the rest of Denmark and Europe just like the club has provided participants several times to Denmark's and Zealand's Cup. Every year the club has a summer camp where it's all about flying, good times and sleeping overnight in tents at the airfield. From the ground you don't usually see the gliders. The flight is often at altitudes between 500 and 1500 m. Thus significantly higher than engine aircrafts which one usually notices. For the pilot in the glider it means a sense of freedom and stunning countryside views. The glider glides soundlessly but often at great speed through the air, until you meet an upward air current, called thermals. The skilled pilot can by exploiting thermals fly several hours, clocking up several hundred kilometers.
