Here is a little information about our club and our prices. If there are differences between this page and the norwegian information, the norwegian one is usually correct. We recommend using google translate on the norwegian version of this site for the most extensive and up to date information. Do not hesitate to ask us if something is unclear. Our courses can usually be taken without knowledge of norwegian, as long as you have a good understanding of english.
Google translate of webpage: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=no&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fntnuf.no. Note that the price translations are wrong, google translate naively translates norwegian kroners to USD without actually converting the currency. All prices shown are in NOK.
NTNU Flyklubb (Flying Club) has been around for 80 years and is a gliding club in Trondheim. NTNUF has close relations to the university NTNU, a lot of our members attend the univeristy and it is our primary source of new student pilots.
Our clubhouse is located near Lerkendal Stadium and is called Paulinegård (shortened «PG»). Here we have a glider workshop, a kitchen and a livingroom. We meet here for classes, social gatherings and volunteer work.
During the school year we fly at Oppdal Airfield every weekend. We carpool together from Paulinegård every flying day. Saturdays we meet at 7 AM and Sundays we meet there at 9 AM. We usually return in the late afternoon or evening.
In early May we move ourglider to Starmoen airfield for the summer, because there’s always a tug pilot and a tug plane there, as well as multiple competitions and activites. Our gliders typicaly return to Oppdal the first or second weekend of August.
