About The Club


The South Coast Flying Club was formed by a group of like-minded people who wanted a flying club to be a friendly place where individuals with flying in common could satisfy their aviation needs.

Many of our members are happy to share flights and help less experienced pilots develop their skills.

Click on the section below to find out more.

We have our own club room located on the airfield equipped with a computer and internet access for your flight planning.

The club room also has tea and coffee supplies which can be used to make yourself a drink.

Parking outside the club room is free, saving you £s on every visit to the airfield.

Most groups on the airfield do not have access to a room and we are proud to be able to offer this to our members.

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 Advance 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 on row 12 in the main hangar 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!
