Beverley Soaring Society

Come Fly With Us

The Beverley Soaring Society (BSS) is the largest gliding club in Western Australia and also the closest to the Perth metropolitan area, being less than two hours away by car.

We have a large club fleet of three two-seat aircraft, four single-seat aircraft and two Pawnee tow planes. Our members also have around 45 privately owned gliders at our airfield.

Our panel of qualified and highly-experienced volunteer gliding instructors are rostered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each weekend to teach the skills of soaring to anyone from a teenager to airline pilots following the Gliding Federation Australia training syllabus.

We also offer Air Experience Flights for anyone who wants to experience the thrill of gliding and get an amazing view of the beautiful Avon Valley.

Our gliding club has a strong cross-country flying ethic and ranks near the top of the world in the On-line Gliding Competition (OLC). Our national-level performance coaches provide advanced soaring and cross-country skills to members and visitors.
