Arriving by air

Gliders are, of course, welcome! Under the terms of our planning permission, self-launching sailplanes must take a glider launch and can then start their engine outside a radius of 10km from the airfield.

Visitors in powered aircraft are strictly PPR and are restricted by the local planning authority. It is OK for tow planes from other clubs to land to retrieve their gliders but please aim to take off by 6pm local time and do get a good briefing about tow-out paths.

If you are hoping to fly in please call the office for more details and note that the circuit radio frequency is 131.275 MHz. Please read and abide by our local airspace rules.

If you are visiting the area by light aircraft, other than for gliding purposes there are two very friendly airfields close by; Bourn and Little Gransden, which are more geared up to receiving light aircraft.

All glider pilots

It is necessary to produce a valid medical certificate when signing on as a reciprocal or a temporary member at Cambridge Gliding Club should you wish to use the Club facilities to take a launch as P1.

This applies when flying either privately owned or Club gliders.
