Launch Fees

Following the committee meeting held in the clubhouse on July 7th 2012, it was unanimously agreed to increase flying fees in order to offset the increased costs experienced by the club. The aim is to ensure that Wyvern is on a solid financial footing and able to thrive into the future. The increases will start immediately but in tandem, the Chairman is conducting a detailed analysis of costs, income and trends and will communicate his findings on the options and opportunities to the membership once complete.

Launch fees for club gliders will increase to £4.00 and include the first 10 minutes air time as before.
 
Launch fees for private gliders increase to £6.00
 
Gliding fees will increase to £0.25 per minute starting at 15 mins and up to a maximum of 2 hours (all flights of over 2 hours will only incur a 2 hour fee).
 
Please see the new rates on the 'Fees' page!
 
Motor Glider costs increase to £60 per tacho hour.
Prepayment options for both Gliding and Motorgliding which will benefit both the club and the pilot are being investigated.
Please remember that the fees have not increased since 2008 and are below those charged by most service clubs who operate in a similar environment.
