Club Fleet

ASK 21    VH-GOZ

Built in Germany and ordered new form the factory in 2022, GOZ is the club's primary training two seat aircraft used for ab initio training. The ASK 21 fully aerobatic, is a very safe and reliable training glider, perfectly suited for it's role in our club. Our club is very grateful for the generous provision of this brand new glider by long time member, Mr Phil Hollick.

Janus CT   VH-ZAV

The Janus was acquired in 2022. 

ZAV serves the role as a second training two seater at our club, while offering increased performance over the ASK 21. It is used for all ab initio and cross country training. The Janus is the CT model - providing a small retractable engine that allows a greater range when cross country soaring. Last summer the Janus several flights of 2-300km and one in excess of 500km.

LS3a    VH-WUQ

The club's performance single seater ordered new from the Rolladen Schneider factory in 1979. The LS3a competes in the 15m class when ballasted and is very competitive in club class when unballasted. The LS3a is a delight to fly and is the ideal cross country and competition glider for our club. This LS3a completed a 1000km flight from our club in 1982.

Astir CS    VH-GDJ

Previously owned by a club syndicate, the Sunraysia Gliding Club purchased DJ in 1978. DJ has a 15m wing span and is classified under the Standard glass, having no flaps. DJ is a competitive and reliable cross county glider, ideal for the first conversion from the two seat gliders into the sporting single seaters.

Privately Owned LS3    VH-GQI

Rolladen-Schneider LS3, built in Germany in 1978. This example differs from the club-owned WUQ mainly with it's full-span flaperons and smaller tail volume, producing slightly different performance and handling characteristics. 

Privately Owned Discus   VH-ZAR

The Discus belongs to one of our senior instructors and regularly makes long distance flights from Mildura throughout Vic, SA and NSW. ZAR has the advantage of being a fully self-launching glider.

Privately Owned Kestral   VH-GXX

The Kestral was purchased in 2021 by a club member. It had been based in Waikerie for a number of years and had flown in the world championships in the 1990's. The Kestral regularly attends national competitions and has flown a number of 500km + flights since arriving in Mildura.


Originally assembled in 1979, the present day winch was refurnished with several modifications including the updated 360 cubic inch, Chrysler V8 and a modified automatic transmission to deliver the power along an axel to the two winch drums. The winch is designed to launch one aircraft at a time and uses approximately 1.5kms of synthetic compound rope to achieve launch heights of between 1500-2000 feet in approximately 50 seconds.

Pie Cart

Acquired by the Sunraysia Gliding Club this caravan was converted into the strips control centre in 1990. The Pie Cart is moved depending on which strip is in use.
