RAF Shawbury

Aries Magazine

Wrekin Gliding Club to start flying from Shawbury from September.

The Wrekin Glider Club, who have operated from RAF Cosford for the last 53 years, are relocating to RAF Shawbury to operate aero-towed gliders at the weekends.  The aim of the club is to provide military serving, Civil Service and our Contractor partners, along with their families, the opportunity to undertake gliding activities. This will be, for some, the first opportunity to fly and may be the start of a career in aviation.  This very safe activity has undergone a rigorous assurance process before commencing operations from RAF Shawbury and, by virtue of its very nature, will be extremely quiet.  We (RAF Shawbury) wanted to let you know about the gliding before you see an article in the forthcoming Aries Magazine or before you see unexpected gliders in the overhead of RAF Shawbury.

Please contact Astley Parish Council if any questions need forwarding to the RAF.
