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.
Fly-Out - Longside, Peterhead
Saturday 20th September 2014
10.00am for 11.00am Departure
As a result of poor weather conditions, we've re-scheduled our fly-out to Buchan Aero Club up at Longside Airfield (a small tarmac airstrip on an old air base west of Peterhead). The folk at Buchan Aero Club are very friendly and always pleased to welcome visitors so this should be a fun day out to a part of the country to which you may not have flown very often.
Fly-outs are a great opportunity to meet new club members and even get to fly in a type of aircraft different to what you normally fly and the trip up will involve by-passing the Aberdeen Zone in an interesting manner, if previous flights up there are anything to go by.
Annual Treasure Hunt (2014)
Saturday 27th September 2014
Fife Airport (+ Surrounding Areas)
Time once again for all you competitive folk to dust of the little grey cells and get ready for our Annual Treasure Hunt! Mark Boyle has put the clues together and will be ably assisted by Calum Walker on the day and you can be pretty certain that you'll be given some puzzling riddles to solve, which will then have you planning a cross-country excursion to prove you got them all right!
The format is very simple .... each team has to solve a set of clues to identify a number of landmarks then plot a course to visit the landmarks. Points will be awarded for solving the clues correctly (and flying to the right places) and the winning team will the one that racks up the most points.
