Welcome to Perranporth Flying Club, based at Cornwall's only tarmac-surfaced General Aviation airfield. We exist primarily to promote the participation in flying for people from the local community and welcome everyone who wants to come and enjoy our wonderful sport. The club has nearly 100 members, some of whom are training for their PPLs, some who fly their own aircraft and others who enjoy helping out and being involved in the active and friendly atmosphere.
Our training school has an enviable record of guiding students successfully through both the European and the National PPL courses, and also the IMC Rating course.
Visitors are always made welcome and Perranporth is an ideal base for visiting the beautiful county of Cornwall - indeed the cliff-top setting of the airfield with a view of Perranporth's stunning surfing beach is a treat in its own right! The airfield lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and rare birds of prey, butterflies and wild flowers can be seen from the cliff-top walks nearby.
A War Memorial to pilots killed during the Second World War is situated next to the control tower and every year we host a well-attended memorial service. Aeroplanes first used this land in 1924 and later the aerodrome played an important role as a base for squadrons of Spitfires, Avengers and Swordfish between 1941 and 1945.
