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 (Lunch in Oban)
Sunday 1st February 2015
10.30am - Fife Airport
Our first fly-out of 2015 (weather permitting, of course) will take us west to Oban. Oban is a little over an hour's flying time from Fife ..... sometimes a little more depending on which direction the wind's blowing.
The plan is to meet up at Fife around 10.30am, sort ourselves out and get in the air as soon after 11.00am as possible. Once we get to Oban, the Lochnell Arms Hotel is right at the end of the runway (approx. 10 mins walk from the terminal building) where we'll grab a bite to eat before heading back to Fife.
We've got at least one Warrior booked for the trip so this is an ideal opportunity for students (and pilots), to brush up on nav. skills or just experience a bit of cross-country fun.
All in all, 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 so this should be a great day out for both pilots and passengers alike.
