Prestwick Flying Club was established at Prestwick Airport in 1975 and has been in continuous existence thanks to the co-operation and support of successive management at the airport and the efforts of the voluntary work of members who have dedicated themselves to the sustainability of the club.

This facility exists at Glasgow- Prestwick Airport, (on the south side), and is open for the benefit not only of the local community, but indeed the whole of south west Scotland. This is reflected by the fact that members not only reside in Ayrshire but come from as far away as Glasgow, Fife and mid central Scotland.

The principles of the club when formed those many years ago, still apply to this day, namely :-

  • The provision of light single engine aircraft flying on a not for profit basis :-

  • to train those who have aspired to achieve the goal of learning to fly ; gain their Private Pilot's License and perhaps even progress into a career in aviation - as many have done.

  • to allow those who have gained their License to continue to enjoy recreational flying.

  • provide the integral clubhouse facilities, incorporating not only the logistics required for the safe operation and undertaking of flying, but also a place which allows social meetings for all those interested in aviation.
