The Wellington Gliding Club together with Gliding Wairarapa incorporated the Greytown Soaring Centre. With the support from the neighbouring Papawai Marae and Greytown community the Greytown Soaring Centre has been established to teach soaring to people of all ages with a special focus on teaching youth to soar. As the Greytown Soaring Centre evolves it aims to become the top training facility for youth in New Zealand.
