Fenland Gliding Club

The Fenland Gliding Club, based at RAF Marham, is a regional club of the RAF Gliding and Soaring Association operating from the airfield at weekends and public holidays. Membership is open to Service personnel of all ranks and to their families. No qualifications are necessary; the club can train pilots from ab initio to competitive cross country standard and have a fleet of aircraft that meet all aspirations; the only requirement is an interest in gliding and a willingness to share in the running of the club.

For service personnel we have a special offer of £20.00 for three flights and continued membership of the club until 31st October. Then, for JNCOs and below, there is the Malcolm Club Scheme which allows for scholarship to further offset costs. For dependants and civilians, temporary membership of one month is available, so that beginners can try their hand before committing themselves to an annual membership.

New members are always welcome at the club.
