"NEW" Bigger and Improved Training and Flying Field
UKPPG (Known as Fenland Wind and Airsports Centre) have now MOVED to our NEW larger Flying Field after Nearly 5 years at our previous location.
The NEW UKPPG Field is much bigger and much safer with NO Hazards, Wind Obstructions, or Electricity Pylons.
We have now established a 10 year lease on the new location and are developing the site to make it better for our students and UKPPG Members.
We have heavily invested in NEW onsite facilities including a new Training / Clubroom, Flight Simulator, Mens, Ladies and Disabled Toilets, Family Area, Parking and Camping Area and maintanance equipment.
We also have also re-newed and increased our 2012 stock of training and flying Equipment and this is also available now for Hire so if you are out and about and fancy a fly but left your equipment at home then just give us a call and hire for the day.
Anyone Flying In - Flying Over Head - or Flying From UKPPG are kindly asked to please adhere to the NO-FLY areas as illustrated in RED on the plan below.
