Gliding Club Closure at Daedalus

Jim Forrest visits Glider Club

Jim Forrest visits Portsmouth Naval Gliding Club at Daedalus.

Jim raised concerns about the future of Portsmouth Naval Gliding Club at Daedalus. He told councillors: “I welcome the prosperity and employment investment at Daedalus is bringing to Stubbington.

“But I hope commercial flying will not endanger this club which has for so long been a leisure asset, a training opportunity for young aspiring pilots, and a much-loved feature of our seascape.”

Jim Forrest recently had meetings with officials of the club, and with Council officers, to discuss a proposal to end winch-launched glider flights from Daedalus.

The club fears that the increase in costs, and reductions in the number of flights they can offer, might have an impact on their ability to continue at Daedalus.

The club has operated there for around 70 years, and the tradition of gliding at Daedalus stretches back to the earliest days of the former naval air base.
