Glider pilots from across the UK come to Cairngorm Gliding Club's scenic home of Feshiebridge every October for the Autumn Wave Festival, hoping to achieve diamond height gain of 500m or to improve personal bests in the unique wave conditions arising from the exceptionally smooth upward flow of air around the Cairngorm Mountains. For beginners, a trial gliding lesson with dual controls costs £59 and includes a one month club membership. A year's membership for frequent flyers is £140, plus £10 joining fee, but there are various concessions.
