Welcome to the Australian Gliding Museum Home Page

handoverThe Australian Gliding Museum first met as a committee on February 26th 1999. This brought together a number of kindred spirits interested in preserving older and historic gliders. These gliders are scattered all over Australia and the aim is to collect them in a safe place before they become destroyed or deteriorate beyond sensible refurbishment.

Other interesting gliding paraphernalia also is becoming available. A strong catalyst for formation of a glider museum was the discovery that an important Australian designed Schneider glider had left Australia bound for a foreign collection.

Australian Gliding Museum features the world's third oldest fibreglass glider at the 2016 Open Day. PDF Print E-mail

ComparisonOn Sunday 30th October, the Open Day, Annual General Meeting and Barbeque attracted well over 40 members and visitors. With plenty of time to enjoy the exhibits, as the weather prevented the flying program, visitors enjoyed a social and informative interlude. The Museum development continues at a rapid pace, with 58 gliders, a covered enlarged paintshop completed and continued progress towards the ultimate aim of a public museum. The Committee thanked all volunteers and members for their continued efforts in the many facets of development of the museum. A delicious barbeque and salad lunch followed, with more socialising in the delightful and stimulating museum environment through the afternoon.
