About Us

RBWLleweni Parc is in many ways the realisation of a soaring dream for Rod Witter.  A glider pilot for more years than he cares to remember, Rod has flown in the area over several decades from Cosford, Bryngwyn Bach and latterly from Lleweni Parc.  Realising that the Snowdonia Wave was always in phase with the Vale of Clwyd, Rod set out to find the perfect site to take advantage of that fantastic wave - and finally found it at Lleweni in the late 1980s.

ridge coachingLleweni Parc is not a conventional members' club with training on demand, but an enterprise owned and supported by Rod and Sue Witter who are passionate about promoting the future of gliding in the UK. They particularly back junior gliding through ideas such as launch deals and accommodation options and there is many a junior who has experienced his or her first wave above North Wales with Rod in his Duo Discus or Arcus.

Because of this focus on Gold and Diamond quality flying, gliding activity at Lleweni Parc is intermittent and focussed on the Spring and Autumn Wavefests although, of course, expeditions can be hosted at any time of year by arrangement.

Chris Gill is the CFI. He came to us from Sutton Bank and operates the DG1001M to provide soaring coaching for inexperienced pilots. We find that many clubs can't provide this kind of coaching, which attracts many of our customers. Chris has done lots of enterprising flying since coming here, including re-pioneering the ridge run from Conwy down to Nefyn in a NWly wind (as seen in pic above). Chris has spent many hours soaring hills low down, lots of wave flights over 20,000ft and flying many KMs in thermal. Unsurprisingly he is currently holding the record for our ridge task at an average speed of over 160kph! Come and beat him!

Ian Stewart is Groundsman for Lleweni Parc and also serves as an excellent winch driver. Together with Rod he is responsible for the maintenance of the beautiful woodland and water environments and paths at Lleweni Parc. Ian is our resident fishing expert!

Clare (Witter) Holland helps out with Marketing Support and Promotions on a part-time basis. She and her family are often to be found at Lleweni Parc enjoying the walks, river and environment and exploring the wider area. Clare is also partly responsible for Lleweni Parcs facebook page, although is not sure she can put faces to the names of all Lleweni's friends!
