Facilities at Sussex Flying Club

“Sussex Flying Club has excellent facilities in a first-class location to meet all of your training requirements.”


Besides the beautiful vista this provides an advantage to students, as they can observe movements and operations taking place on the taxiways and runways. Students are also able to observe aircraft taking off and landing, which assists their understanding of concepts explained in the classrooms. If you are a first time visitor maybe watching a friend or relative having their first flight with us you can see everything from the viewing area. Better still, we are right above the Airport Restaurant so you can enjoy a meal or snack during your visit.

We have a range of purpose-designed teaching and briefing areas. As well as constant updates on weather and operational information throughout the day, the Operations Area also contains maps, charts and other aeronautical information. This information is available to student pilots and the large number of club members who have obtained their Licences and are flying in the local area or taking their friends to other airfields. This could soon be you! Flying is a very sociable and friendly activity; other members will be keen to help and to share their experiences with you if you are learning to fly.

A further classroom and briefing room is used for examinations and this also contains a radio training simulator. Sussex Flying Club is a CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) approved Radio Licence testing facility, so this separate area is used extensively.
