Who we are

Suffolk Soaring Group was established in 2016 at Hinderclay in North Suffolk by a small group of pilots, with the aim of flying light aeroplanes and gliders. The site is rented from a local landowner. Full planning permission for the flying and infrastructure was granted in 2017. The planning application was fully supported by the local parish council. We currently have five aircraft based at Hinderclay – two light aeroplanes, a motor glider and two gliders. Flying takes place whenever the weather is suitable.

Suffolk Soaring Group is an affiliated member of the British Gliding Association.

The site has a hangar,20m x 12m, with power and a hard floor. There is also a heated workshop, which is currently being utilised for the construction of a new aircraft.

We welcome visitors by air or road. Pilots are advised to view the airfield information pages prior to flying in. 

It is intended to hold a “Fly-In” in June 2020 to introduce our field to other pilots - details on the “What's On” page
