Information for visitors to the Long Mynd

 


Please refer to How to FInd Us
for detailed maps and directions.

We welcome all visitors to the airfield but ask that you close the gate at the entrance behind you, maintain a safe driving speed at all times, keep a good look out for aircraft (we land in all directions) and keep all dogs and young children under control. Airfields can be dangerous places for the unwary. Once through the gate turn immediately right and follow the grass track along the edge of the hill, turn left after the trees and park in either of our two parking areas. Please do not use the tarmac road.

As a visitor please report to the office first before you do anyhting. We need to know if you are on site. The car park is behind the trailer line to the south of the hangar. The door to the clubhouse is in the north west corner of the car park next to the hangar. The office is immediately inside the clubhouse.

Visiting pilots who wish to fly solo in an MGC aircraft MUST lodge a copy of a valid medical certificate with the office before flying. This is a condition of our insurance. Anyone flying without doing so will not be insured.

  Treat the family
 

Hard as it is to believe we are aware that some people are not all that interested in hanging around an airfield all day watching gliders. So here are few things that might keep them occupied. Shropshire is a fantastic place to visit for a few days.
