Become a Member

There are four types of membership: Full, Family, Casual and Junior. Everyone can be a Full, Family or Casual member of the club. To encourage younger people to take up this fantastic sport we have created Junior membership giving subsidised rates to people under the age of 18.

Membership Benefits

Full membership benefits include reduced rates for winch launches and the hire rate of the club gliders. It also allows you to play an even more active role in determining the future of the club because you can vote in MBGC general meetings. 

Casual members are very welcome. It is designed for non flying friends of the club who want to be a part of the club. It can also be used by flying members who do not fly very much so that they fulfill the requirement of the GFA that as a glider pilot you must also be a member of a gliding club. However, the number of flights allowed per year is limited before Full Membership is required.

Junior members enjoy subsidised rates for winch launches and the hire rate of the club gliders. Junior members, at the end of the year in which they reach 18 years of age, must become Full, Family or Casual members.

Apply for Membership

Just fill in this form and bring it down to Mt Beauty Airport on a day we are flying. You will also need to become a member of the GFA (Gliding Federation of Australia). Contact us if you would like us to help you with this. If you do not already have a logbook you will need to buy one of those as well. See "Rates" below for more information.
