About The Club

All you need to know about Edinburgh and Fife Aero Club


Edinburgh and Fife Aero Club (EFAC) was formed in 1984 under the original name of Fife Aero Club, and latterly Fife Flying Club. EFAC is based at Fife Airport (EGPJ), an unlicensed airfield near Glenrothes, which is ideally positioned for quick and easy access to some of the most attractive scenery in the UK, much of which is uncontrolled airspace.

Fife Airport itself dates from the early 1960s and originally operated as a grass airfield supporting a number of flying operations including flying training and parachuting. In 1981, the grass runway was replaced by the current 700 metres of tarmac, which today is the only civilian hard runway in Fife.

The club has over 100 active members who come not only from Fife itself but also the Lothians, Tayside, Central Scotland and beyond. Our membership covers a wide range of experience levels from; students, NPPL, LAPL, PPL and even a number of commercial pilots, many of whom started their flying as students here at Fife.

The club has a busy calendar of events to cater for the diverse interests of its members, including:

The club also organises events in support of local charities and the highlight of the season is perhaps the “Annual Summer Fly-In and Open Day”. This event is always popular with the local community when we open our doors and put on air and ground-based attractions as a fun family day out.

There’s always something going on around the airfield and we particularly welcome visiting pilots who wish to either drop in for a quick visit, or stay for a few days and enjoy a short holiday in Fife.
