We are currently welcoming new members to the group.
The club is run by volunteers and is a self service club. This means we do not have any staff at the airport.
Once you are a member you also have access to our club room located in the Advanced Helicopters building along with free parking.
Feel free to put on a high viz jacket and go and have a look at the airplanes. They live in the main hanger at Shoreham.
The volunteers do a great job often with little thanks – please remember we are not a business and no one is paid. Please allow 24 hours for a response as we all have other jobs!
If you are interested in joining the club please complete the membership form below. Any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org

A further insurance requirement (currency rule) is that you must have flown within 90 days to fly any of the aircraft. This is in addition to the standard PPL stipulation that in order to carry a passenger you will need to have completed 3 take-off and landings within the last 90 days.
