Dansk Svæveflyvehistorisk Klub - DaSK

The Danish Gliding History Club, DaSK, does not put the planes in a museum or hang them under the ceiling. They restore and maintain the planes - and fly with them. Book a tour and visit the hangar and workshops.

Today's gliders are built in fiberglass, whereas veteran gliders are often built of wood and with canvas and appear in DaSK, as when they were used in the Danish glider clubs. Only equipped with an altimeter, speedometer, wool cord and a variometer. There are flights in the glorious old gliders, not only flights over Arnborg, but also longer trips over the Jutland landscape.

The Danish Gliding History Club was founded in 1988 and is based at the Gliding Center Arnborg. The purpose of the club is briefly described, to ensure that gliding historical values ​​are restored, stored, and maintained in a sound manner. The oldest planes were built in the late 30s and the youngest planes were built in the late 60s.

DaSK is occasionally handed over gliders from clubs and private individuals. Some are airworthy but are, in the eyes of the owner, worn out, while others have been left hanging in miserable conditions. These aircraft require a lot of work to become airworthy again. It may take several years.

The club currently owns approx. 70 aircraft of which 33 aircraft are airworthy. 2-3 aircraft are under restoration. In addition, we have a collection of effects associated with gliding in Denmark.
