Alister's 300km Gold

The Cairngorm Gliding Club has been operating from the Feshie Airstrip for 50 years. It lies in an area of outstanding natural beauty and breathtaking scenery on the edge of Cairngorm Mountains and the Spey Valley, 3 miles from Kincraig.

Feshie is an ideal soaring location with superb conditions for ridge, wave and thermal cross country flying.  We aerotow using our Robin DR400 tug to launch gliders into the best soaring areas.  Our average flight times are among the best, if not the best in the country.

Come visit us for a memorable experience and fly in the most beautiful scenic part of Scotland.

We look forward to seeing you.

 


INTER CLUB LEAGUE 2017

Once again we brought home the trophy!

Victory was secured during a very windy weekend at Portmoak on 24/25 June.  Wave conditions were best on Saturday with Nick Norman and John Smyth covering 530km in the ASH.  Mike Morrison (intermediate) and Bill Anderson (novice) also flew but had trouble contacting the wave above the cloud cover.  Group photo here.     

We still need more club members to get involved!  Even if you don't want to compete, volunteer crew and cheerleaders are always welcome, and visits to our neighbour clubs are always fascinating.  For those who may be unsure about what crewing involves, Phil has written the story of the Portmoak weekend from the crew's perspective.

 Next year's meetings will be at Feshie and Aboyne.  Be there to support your club!
