The clubhouse is well equipped and we have facilities for campers and caravanners.
The airfield is also equipped with workshop facilities that, by arrangement, pilots can use. We also have a resident engineer who is approved for ARCs on Motor Gliders and all BGA gliders including turbos. Also for wood repairs, metal repairs, general maintenance, recovering and spraying.
The clubhouse has toilets, showers and a kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, toaster, fridge and oven and offers tea and coffee making facilities.
There is always a selection of cold drinks, snacks and confectionery for sale from the fridge in the clubroom.
We have a briefing room, and dry storage room for parachutes.

Accommodation and Eating Out
There is a wide range of bed & breakfast accommodation locally. Self catering cottages or flats are also available and there are several hotels in the area.
The area has a ‘foodie’ reputation and there is plenty of choice from basic pub fare to gastro-pub style and fine dining.
We do not maintain a list of places to stay or dine at. We recommend that visitors use the excellent Talgarth Information & Resource Centre (01874 712226) . They maintain up to date lists of accommodation and availability and can take bookings directly.
Usually bed and breakfast accommodation is available at short notice, but the Brecon Beacons National Park is a popular tourist area and so pre-booking of accommodation is advisable at busy times, and during the Hay Festival (first week in June), the Brecon Jazz Festival (August) and Abergavenny Food Festival (September).
There are shops and pubs in Talgarth, Bronllys, and Llangorse. Or for more choice go to Brecon, Hay on Wye, Crickhowell or Abergavenny.
