Visiting Pilots

Visitors from other gliding clubs are welcome to fly with us.

Please remember to bring your log book, medical and any gliding qualifications you have.

If you are thinking about coming for a few days then ask about the on-site caravans and camping or about the local pubs. We have no spare hangarage but we do offer a large grass area for rigging, de-rigging and overnight picketing. Launching is by winch or aerotow. Flying is in the main soaring over lovely countryside and there are the occasional waves. Long cross country flights are quite feasible.

The Duty Instructor holds a daily briefing at 09.00 each flying day. Obviously you will want to help out at the launch point when not flying, and to become a part of our safety culture.

The section of our operations manual can be viewed here.

 

If you are intending to visit us as a reciprocal member please contact the office in advance to arrange for a flying account account to be opened for you. The daily reciprocal charge is £10 per day (£5 for juniors) or £45 per week (£22.50 for juniors). Reciprocal membership is limited to 10 flying days per year.

Currently, members of Camphill, Crowland, Darlton, Husbands Bosworth and Kirton in Lindsey are exempt from reciprocal charges.
