Information for visitors


Visiting glider pilots intending to fly their own glider from the field, please use the contact form.

Due to planning and leasing constraints, we can only give permission for motor gliders from other clubs to visit the field.

No other powered aircraft can be accepted.


Our members and instructors will be delighted to talk to you and show you around, but we do ask that you report to the clubhouse and observe safety regulations for an active airfield. Tea, coffee, cold drinks and toilet facilities are available at the clubhouse. Please read the safety information below.
