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.
Buchan Aero Club - Annual Fly-In (2015)
Saturday 6th June 2015
The folks at Buchan Aero Club are holding their annual fly-in on Saturday 6th June 2015 and it would be great if we could get a good number of aircraft and passengers together to make the trip up that day.
Buchan Aero Club is located at Longside Airfield (a small tarmac airstrip on an old air base west of Peterhead) and we had arranged a fly-out there of our own but in the end, only one aircraft went. The folk at Buchan Aero Club are very friendly and always pleased to welcome visitors and their fly-ins are always a fun event so let's see how many of us we can get together to make the trip?
If you’d like to come along .....
Places on these trips are dependent on there being sufficient aircraft, pilots and spare seats available so once again we’ll put a Booking Sheet up on the notice board in the portacabin at Fife.
If you’re a pilot and would like to fly at least one leg (i.e. there or back) please add your name to the “Pilot” column. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to come as a passenger, please add your name to the “Passenger” column.
Once we know how many aircraft & pilots we have, we’ll confirm seating availability on a “first come, first served” basis.
National Fly-Kids Day
Saturday 20th June 2015
Fife Flying Club has again been presented with a fantastic opportunity to support a national event designed to help local kids touched by adversity by giving disadvantaged children a flight of their lives. It could help a less fortunate youngster change the shape of their life for the better.
One of our members, Stan Stewart, is Chair of a national aviation charity organisation called Aviation Without Borders, one of a “family” of European charities known collectively as ASF Europe, in honour of the founding member Aviation Sans Frontières of France.
AWB is dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance through aviation services and operates internationally providing logistics for the air freighting of humanitarian aid such as medicines, medical and surgical equipment, and food to various places in the world.
