Description

Carried over from last year because the weather would not play ball.

One of the most popular early fly out destinations has been missing from the Take Flight calendar for a year or so but we reckon the time is right to revisit the Isle of Wight. It’s far enough that you feel that you're on holiday but close enough that it won’t break the bank and of course there’s that four- mile sea crossing.

So treat yourself to some refreshing sea air and delicious sea food all in the company of your fellow aviators. May we suggest the newly refurbished Propeller Inn for lunch at Bembridge airfield followed by a stroll and ice cream on the beach.

The Isle boasts some of the UK's most stunning landscapes and beaches. Bembridge itself offers a variety of activities including idyllic coastal walks and tours of its picturesque 1700's Windmill.

Bembridge Airfield is an unlicensed airfield managed by the Vectis Gliding Club Ltd (VGC). The main runway is orientated 300/120 degrees, and consists of some 827 x 12 metres of concrete. VGC no longer conducts gliding operations from Bembridge however there are a number of resident power aircraft, and model flying at any time to the North side of the airfield up to 500 feet agl.

Flying time around an hour depending on your aircraft and you may wish to take an additional 30 minutes to navigate around the island to take in the breath-taking views.

Why not split the cost with another pilot or if you are a student member liaise with your instructor and take the trip as a Navigation exercise?
