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
Sunday 5th October 2014
10.00am for 11.00am Departure
We're going to have yet another crack at 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.
Club Night (Club Members' Trips)
Thursday 23rd October 2014
The Tipsy Nipper, Fife Airport
We are having a club night on the 23rd October where we are inviting YOU to come along and tell us about things you have done, that might be of help or use to other members.
So far we have Alastair Shaw coming to tell us how he got his US FAA licence - easy to do if you have a UK PPL, but you need to go to the US and prove that you can speak English ... In addition Alastair might be persuaded to show some of his GoPro videos, shot while flying in the Fife Cessna, G-BITF.
Mark Boyle may also regale us with his tales of flying in the USA (it is cheaper than the UK by miles and a great thing to do whilst on holiday over there).
