The Bustard Flying Club exists to stimulate air-mindedness and to encourage a practical interest in and knowledge of flying among the staff at MoD Boscombe Down and other eligible personnel linked to the MoD and QinetiQ.
The Club owns two aircraft (Robin DR400-140 - G-PVCV and Slingsby T-67M MkII Firefly - G-BUUI) which are available for hire by Club members; the Club also provides training to the Private Pilot's Licence (PPL) standard. Some Club members operate their own aircraft under the auspice of the Club and this allows the Club to support significantly more flying than could be achieved with just the two aircraft. The Club has some eighty members, and is administered by a Committee which is elected annually.
