For the time being, Motor Glider Trial Lessons remain suspended.


After slow start to the year we have now seen an upturn in activity with the appointment of two Ass Cat Instructors, Rob Cray and Jon Stiles, to our team of field supervisors this coupled with a newly appointed Basic Instructor, Joe Middleton we are now able to achieve a little more on each flying day.


Congratulations also goes to two of our juniors, Omari McNammee-Black and Nathan Stone, who have both made their first solo flights. We are happy to say there more members who will be approaching this milestone soon

Membership Annual Payments

Although we shall continue flying while the field works are taking place for at least two years there will be some reduction in efficiency. It has been decided therefore to make a temporary reduction in membership fees for flying members. Your next payment will be the normal amount but that will cover two years membership rather than one.

All renewals are at the start of a quarter so the payments will work as follows:


  • Members whose renewal is due on 1 July: Your account will be debited by the usual amount (£305 for over 25’s) on 1 July 2018 but after that the next membership annual payment will not be due until 1 July 2020.

  • Renewal 1October: £305 on 1 October 2018. Next payment 1 October 2020.


  • Renewal 1 January: £305 on 1 January 2019. Next payment 1 January 2021.


  • Renewal 1 April: £305 on 1 April 2019. Next payment 1 April 2021.
