OUR AIRFIELD

Edgehill Gliding Centre will operate from Shenington Airfield. This 80 acre airfield offers opportunities to fly safely in all wind directions, providing access to our local ridge and its winter soaring.


Members and visitors will have access to the clubhouse, bar, briefing room and kitchen facilities, as will all other airfield users.

Members and visitors will be able to stay on site, either camping or with a caravan.
