Talgarth airfield is smaller than typical ‘flat land’ gliding airfield. Despite this it offers numerous take-off and landing options. There is a lot more room than first meets the eye. It’s also not completely flat which actually helps us as most landing runs are slightly uphill.
The size of the airfield puts some constraints on operations and also means pilots have to be disciplined in preparing to fly and helping to manage operations if everything is to go smoothly.
Also, being a mountains gliding site there are some other factors that need to be taken into account. However, flying at Talgarth should be within the capability of any glider pilot.
These briefing pages will help you understand how we operate at Talgarth. Please familiarise yourself with them, ideally watch the video briefings. If you have any specific queries please contact us.
See you at our daily briefing (10:00am in the briefing room).
