Justin Wills

Justin is a gliding legend.

He has spent the last 50 years exploring the planet by glider and has flown extensively on every continent except Antarctica.  Along the way he won almost every major National gliding competition in the world, became multiple UK champion and for 10 years finished in the top six of the World Championships.

He and his wife Gillian moved to New Zealand more than 25 years ago to farm Merino sheep and to live near Omarama.  Now they’ve sold the farm and retired to Omarama so Justin can do even more gliding and help out with teaching and leading gliding expeditions for Glide Omarama.

The most widely experienced cross country and mountain flying instructor that Glide Omarama has ever had, Justin coaches performance and mountain flying and loves to lead soaring expeditions the length and breadth of the South Island and New Zealand.  He also trains cross country coaches, runs Enterprise competitions and coaches Youth Glide.
