Opening Times.

When can I fly?

During the flying season (May to October) we are open from 9am every day (weather permitting!)

Members will be able to let us know when they're planning to come via the new flight admin system. Visitors are always welcome! If you've not booked in already then please send us an email or give us a call to check on our plan for that day.  

Members and Visiting Pilots arrive from 09:00am, flying starts nearer 10:30.  If you are coming for a Trial Lesson and you have not booked already in advance please call 07866 730 273 to check availability. If already booked then call 07849 979 575 to check flying conditions. We often fly well into the evening! We operate a "flying list" - first come, first served, so the earlier you arrive the less time you're likely to have to wait.

The weather can change very quickly in the area so it always pays to give us a quick call to check. It may be gloomy at home but perfect flying weather on the airfield. (And vice versa!)

"We're open every day from 09:00."

We also run courses and have groups of pilots from gliding clubs from all over the UK (and sometimes international pilots) for a week or two at a time. This won't stop you from being able to fly but does mean that we can be busy on some weeks.

Get in touch via the contact page to find out more.

Trial Flights are £75 and Day Course are £175.  Fees for Visiting Pilots are typical for a UK site and for more information or if you are interested in joining us then please take a look at our fees and charges.
