As the festive season approaches we here at TFC often get asked for flying vouchers as presents. While we encourage everybody to experience the thrill of flying in a light aircraft we are unfortunately not in a position at present to accommodate gift voucher flying experience presents. Thank you for your understanding and we wish you all a very happy and Joyous Christmas 2015.
Trim Flying club is not currently seeking PPL Holders to apply for new membership. Please check back early in 2016 and see if we have any vacancies at that time.
Trim Family fun day 2015 was a great success. The club was very proud to have on display such a fine collection of aircraft from all around Ireland.
We would like to express our gratitude to all involved. The day could not have been such an enjoyable day for all but for the effort which each and every person on the organising committee extended.
Our airfield is currently open for use. However as this is subject to change due to many factors including weather etc. please check back prior to your flight and keep a close eye on local weather charts to ensure that the airfield will be able to accommodate you upon your arrival.
PPl holders wishing to join our club please contact us directly.
We are not currently seeking trainee pilot members but we intend to restore our student drive early in 2016. Please keep an eye on our site and our facebook page for updates.
