Welcome to the Severn Valley Microlight Club (SVMC)
We are a club of active and enthusiastic Microlight flyers and welcome anyone with an interest in aviation. To join you do not need to own a plane or have a pilot’s licence but you will be mixing with many members who do. If you would like to know more about microlights, about some of the incredible things our members have done or get more details about the club – then please look through our latest news and events pages.
Severn Valley Microlight Club is centred around the City of Gloucester. The membership of the Club fluctuates from year to year but averages about 75 members all based within a 50 mile radius of the City. (Click on the map below to enlarge it) Members fly from both farm/private strips and GA airfields. From April to September the emphasis is on flying with regular mid-week barbeque fly-ins and the occasional competition. Winter indoor meetings are held at The Flying Shack, Gloucestershire Airport, on the third Wednesday of each month. This gives members the chance to socialise and hear speakers on a wide variety of topics. The December meeting is the Club Christmas Party with entertainment and competitions. The Club publishes a monthly newsletter, Airscrew, and welcomes all pilots and social members into full membership for just £20 per year.
The Club raises funds to support the Air Ambulance by collections at fly-ins and the Christmas Party. In 2019 the total amount collected for the Air Ambulance was £943.90
We also have a ‘closed to club’ Facebook site. Access will only be granted after your membership fee and request to join the Facebook site have been received.
