The gliding centre is part of Starmoen Leisure park outside Elverum. The park offers a variety of activities such as golf, a racecourse, shooting and motoring activities including carting, motor cross and motorbikes.
From the national gliding centre at Elverum you can fly in Østerdalen, Gudbrandsdalen and north west into the mountains.
Skybar altitudes of around 2,500 meters are not uncommon and the typical mountain terrain that characterises the area means there are often strong thermals.
