Welcome to Fife Flying Club
Fife Flying Club was formed in 1984 under the original name of Fife Aero Club and works in partnership with Tayside Aviation to promote flying, provide tuition and encourage social activities amongst its members. Based at Fife Airport (EGPJ - unlicensed) near Glenrothes, it is ideally positioned for quick and easy access to some of the most attractive scenery in the UK, much of which is uncontrolled airspace.
The club has over 100 active members and a busy calendar of events that caters for the diverse interests of its members.
There's always something going on around the airfield and we particularly welcome visiting pilots who wish to either drop in for a quick visit or to stay for a few days and enjoy a short holiday in Fife.
Visit to Scottish Information
July 2014 (Date to be Confirmed)
We're planning a visit to the Scottish Information Operations Centre at Prestwick for late July (they're the folks we speak to on 119.875 when we ask for a "Basic Service" ..... and they often respond by asking us to "Squawk 7401"). This promises to be an interesting trip to gain an insight into what goes on at the "other end of the dialogue" (e.g. they don't work with radar - they're very much dependent on us pilots giving them regular position reports).
Details are still being worked out but we'll either fly through (if the weather permits) or simply drive through (if it doesn't).
Once there, the tour will take about 2 hours but it's likely that spaces on the trip will be limited (they have been in the past) so places will have to go on a "first come, first served" basis.
Once we have final details sorted with Prestwick, we'll need to pass a list of names to them in advance so they can make the necessary security arrangements.
Please watch out for further details here and in the Members' Discussion Forum once they become available.
