(Vouchers issued between 1st March 2020 and 30th September 2020, will be valid until 30th September 2021. Please note your voucher accordingly. We love flying and we’d like to get you in the air too, if you have a voucher that does not fall into this category please contact us for options.)

If you wish to upgrade your voucher to full club membership and begin the journey of learning to fly then please contact us now.

Vouchers are available to purchase, but it will not be possible to use the voucher until restrictions are reduced. Please contact us for advice before purchasing a voucher.


We regret that we are able to accept visitors only by arrangement. Please contact us for advice before coming to the airfield.

Visit us at Shalbourne and share the thrill of flying over one of England's most beautiful downland sites. We are located close to the point where Wiltshire meets Berkshire & Hampshire, 4 miles south of Hungerford, midway between Marlborough, Newbury and Andover.

Weather permitting, we meet at Rivar Hill for flying on weekends, bank holidays and most Wednesdays. Just come along sometime, and we'll fit in your initial trial lesson as quickly as we can, starting from just £45*

* Payment by cash or cheque; regrettably we cannot process cards at the airfield.
