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.
GASCo Safety Evening
General Aviation Safety Council (GASCo) Safety evening – We are hosting a safety evening at 7:30 pm 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.
Remember your log book…...
Club Night - The Air Cadets
At 7:30 pm on Thursday 27th October in the Tipsy Nipper club member Stuart Batty, sometimes known as Flight Lieutenant Stuart Batty, Officer Commanding 859 (Dalgety Bay) Squadron of the Air Training Corps, will give a presentation on the Air Cadets, it’s history, it’s activities and how they approach flying training and promoting aviation.
Many of us will have been Air Cadets in earlier times so it will be fascinating to see what’s changed, what hasn’t and what they’re doing now. If you weren’t an Air Cadet you can find out what you missed ! Maybe you can still join if you are in the age group or you could give them your support as an adult.
