The glider team at NOC recently hosted an enthusiastic group from NIOZ (the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research) and STS (Sea Technology Services – South Africa) to teach them about the technical and operational fundamentals of glider operation.

The NOC glider team have developed the training course as an addition to their existing glider service centre offering, and reinforced NOC Innovations’ status as Europe’s go-to glider pitstop. This course acts as a platform to exchange knowledge, network, and share their breadth and depth of experience operating one of Europe’s largest glider fleets with other institutions to the benefit of operators globally.
Following positive feedback from participants, the course is set to be developed further and run again soon. If you are interested in more bespoke training, this can also be arranged.
