Alister's 300km Gold
Our web site has logged more than 30,000 hits in little more than a year, but probably needs a complete re-design in the near future.  Any member having ideas or expertise in this area please contact the Secretary. 


From Sunday 9th June we will be operating on 118.685Mhz within 10 nautical miles (16km) and up to 3000ft from the airfield.  The 130.105 frequency is to be used beyond those limits for cross country flying, competition flying and situational awareness.

Comments to MIKE MORRISON, Chief Flying Instructor



The next meeting will be at the Highland Gliding Club, Easterton near Elgin, on the weekend of 15/16 June.  We need more club members to get involved, in support roles as well as the actual flying!  Even if you don't want to compete, we can never have too many volunteer crews and cheerleaders, and visits to our neighbour clubs are always fascinating.  We need you there to help support your club! 


Check out this video from the Glide Britain team, made during the Inter Club League weekend in April 2018

The BBC Springwatch team decided against visiting our airfield in 2019 but are considering Autumnwatch.  Meanwhile this extract from "The Nature of Britain" by Alan Titchmarsh is still spine-tingling stuff
