Welcome to Sackville Flying Club

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.
