From Abergavenny follow the signs for A40 Brecon. One mile after Crickhowell turn right off the A40 on to the A479, signposted Rhyader.

After 6 miles you will reach Pengenffordd and pass the Castle pub on your right before reaching the brow of the hill. Trailers can turn right just after the brow of the hill.

Cars should continue down the main road for about a quarter mile then turn right down a narrow lane signposted "GLIDING". Turn left at the T junction then after 100 yards bear right (both signposted). A mile further on you will see a final sign to the left at the entrance to the airfield.

If you are coming from Talgarth village, go to the main roundabout and take the A479 signposted Abergavanny. After approximately 2 miles you will see a signpost to "GLIDING" on your left directing you to turn left. Then follow the lane instructions given previously.

Please drive with care in the lanes as they are narrow.

There is no access to the airfield via Hospital Road.
