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
Sunday 24th August 2014
We're planning a visit to the Scottish Information Operations Centre at Prestwick for later in August (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).
Buddy Day (2014)
Saturday 30th August 2014
We’re holding another “Buddy Day” on Saturday 30th August, which is an opportunity for anyone to fly in another aircraft type to the one they normally fly. Students, Pilots (and maybe even visitors) alike - just ask one of the folk milling around on the day if they have a plane and a spare seat.
