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.
National Fly-Kids Day (Re-scheduled)
Saturday 18th July 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.
Evening Fly-Out to Crail
Thursday 23rd July 2015
Anyone fancy a wee evening trip along the coast to Crail? Assuming the weather holds, a few folk fancied the idea of a quick flight along to Crail on Thursday 23rd July and if you fancy, bring your own disposable barbecue and a burger!
For some, this is a familiar destination, which is easily reachable for a quick summer's evening outing but if you've never been there before, it's an interesting place to land and wander about.
We'll meet up at Fife around 6.30pm and decide if the trip is on.
Keith Boardman ..... "Build Your Own Plane"
Thursday 20th August 2014
Tipsy Nipper, Fife Airport
Last year, Keith Boardman gave us a very entertaining talk on his entry in the "Dawn to Dusk" Competition when he flew the length and breadth of Scotland and photographed every malt whisky distillery ..... all in one day (and you may remember the whisky he shared with us)!
Keith also embarked on a project to build his own aircraft and the results of his efforts is the aircraft he now flies, which replaced the one he used for the competition entry.
He's agreed to come along and tell us about his build project so this evening promises to give a fascinating insight into just what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.
Keith's presentation will take us through the whole exercise through planning, building and finally, flying ..... all in all, no mean feat ..... please put the date in your diary and come along to hear what Keith has to say.
