Purchased in 2013 by two Gyro Pilots. This airfield oozes atmosphere and its environment, The Isle of Wight is some spectacular flying. Your first overseas flight could be to hear, cross the Solent and you are in some great airspace.
Everyone there will give you a warm welcome. Gyro landing fee is just £5.00 and the guys on the radio are very helpful.
Sackville (North Beds)
Sackville Flying Club, based in a quiet, pleasant rural location in North Bedfordshire, is home to a lively group of aviators, all of whom are passionate about flying. Within the club are three groups, whose interests span the three disciplines of Gliding, Microlight Flying and Power Flying. Many of our members have interests in more than one discipline, and indeed, some in all three. In addition, Tim has taken up Hot Air Ballooning and as a result we now host many more balloon launches than previously. We also host the annual Grass Roots Balloon Meet each autumn. Sackville Farm is home to an eclectic mix of aircraft, including several Group A aircraft, a self launching motor glider, a self launching sailplane, numerous flex wing and fixed wing microlights and a hot air balloon. This site provides general information about the activities of the Club, a photograph gallery with photographs from events, expeditions and fly-ins and location details for visitors by air and road.
