Gliding on Texel

Want to admire Texel from a bird’s eye view? Gliding Club Texel offers the opportunity to make a gliding flight from De Vlijt airfield. Within seconds you’ll be climbing at breakneck speed and as soon as the glider has reached its altitude, all you’ll be doing is enjoying yourself. And what a beautiful view of the island from the air!
