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.
Club Night - Aero Space Kinross - Thursday 29th September 2016
The Tipsy Nipper, Fife Airport
Fife Flying Club and Ximango motor glider syndicate member Alisdair Stewart is endeavouring to create a light sport aviation and space flight themed visitor attraction "Aero Space Kinross" with a view to inspiring future generations. He will present the rationale and ambitious vision for this major local initiative at a club night on 29th September.
This promises to be very interesting evening not to be missed, so ..... please put the date in your diary and come along on the evening - it would be great to have as many folk supporting as we can.
We have been advised by Fife Airport Ltd that the airfield will be closed for flying on Friday 14th October from 8.30am until 5pm due to an external event.
GASCo Safety Evening
General Aviation Safety Council (GASCo) Safety evening – We are hosting a safety evening on Thursday 17th November in the Tipsy Nipper restaurant at Fife Airport. This event is not confined to Fife Flying Club members - a warm welcome is extended to all who have an interest in the General Aviation scene.
These talks are delivered on behalf of GASCo by very experienced pilots. Even if you have attended one of these excellent presentations recently it is worth your while attending again, whether you’re a student or a licenced pilot. Every season they chose a different theme so you will learn something new. The theme for this season is "I Have Control?" during which they aim to have a look at the major areas that are the cause of accidents and serious incidents in general aviation. Bring your log book and have it endorsed to certify your attendance.
You will have the opportunity to get your Log Book stamped by GASCo for attending this event.
