The Foundation's work with Scouts

The Faulkes Flying Foundation is providing flight training for Scouts countrywide from bases at Bicester near Oxford, Gransden Lodge West of Cambridge and at Dunstable.

We would be pleased to discuss special away camps with Scout Leaders with a package of flights and an aeronautics badge lecture spread over several days. For further details please contact Mike woollard on 07974-106190

Camping is available for scouts at all of our bases except Dunstable (local scouts camps exist) but the Troop first needs to get the permission of the host club

For practical purposes we limit the age of scouts we fly to 10.5 years and above.

Flying activities are coordinated on our online and regularly updated flight booking calenders which should be referred to for available dates. Any date not already taken or listed as unavailable can be used by your troop. Please click below for our calendars to find available dates.

The Foundation is also available to take scout troops on a number of 'away camps' to soaring centres of outstanding natural beauty such as Sutton Bank, The Long Mynd and Feshiebridge in Scotland where long duration flights are possible with spectacular scenery.
