We understand that glider and sailplane insurance can be an unexpectedly complex process. However, with our expertise and knowledge, we are able to make the process as easy as possible and can offer excellent policies and bespoke services.

We offer both Glider Insurance and Glider Pilot Life Cover whilst providing extremely competitive rates. Sydney Charles is a big supporter of the gliding community and we sponsor the British Junior Gliding Team, The British Gliding Association Annual Conference, the Lasham Gliding Society and many other regional gliding competitions. This makes us uniquely placed to understand the intricacies of insurance for these aircraft.
