Welcome to Moray Flying Club

CAA Declared Training Organisation

Moray Flying Club is a not-for-profit Military flying club for both Kinloss Barracks and RAF Lossiemouth and all Service personnel. We aim to provide cost-effective flying to all Service personnel from all 3 “tri Services” RAF, Army and Navy as well as their dependants. Also Air Cadets, University Air Squadron Members and their organisations' staff as well as Commonwealth Service personnel too.

Reservists and ex-service personnel can join as Associate Members too, as long as they help the club in some form. We are working towards becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in 2021. We also hope to offer Virtual Reality Flying Courses in 2021 as an integral part of training, or just for fun!!

We can currently operate 7 days a week offering full and part time courses to suit your needs. We are also an Approved Training Provider for the Enhanced Learning Credit Military Scheme for many of our courses, if you qualify that funding. Further info is within the website.

Based at Kinloss Barracks on the beautiful shores of the Moray Firth, we offer tuition for the UK Part-FCL Private Pilots licence (PPL), Light Aircraft Pilots licence (LAPL), the CAA National Private Pilot’s licence (NPPL) as well as Night and IMC/IR Restricted Ratings. We can renew your UK licence and/or ratings and arrange Flight Test Examiners.

We have three single engine Cessna aircraft (two C152s and a C172) which can be used for training or hire by valid licence holders. A limited number of non-Service members are also accepted if they can contribute to the club through regular flying and they will also be required to do Duty Member duties at weekends/bank holidays as part of their membership. Non-members can be escorted on to base for trial lessons and introductory flights (including our gift voucher flights), but will need to join the club in order to continue training and flying with us.

All RAF personnel, regardless of rank or job description, are now able to use their ELC funds for a PPL/LAPL course or additional ratings. Your learning centre should know about this but if you have any difficulty draw their attention to the updated Leaflet 2511 a copy of which is linked. MFC course prices are available from our website. You will need to download the course you want to apply for to attach to your ELC Course Application. Once a Claim Authorisation Notice (CAN) is issued you can book your flying with us. If seeking a full time course or several flights a day, a MFC booking form is required with 10% deposit to secure both aircraft and instructor.


Due to the Covid-19 restrictions currently in place, MFC is closed until further notice
Vouchers are still available to buy and we remain contactable by email

Morayvia's Sci-Tech Experience Project

Morayvia formed in May 2011 to take forward work started by the Nimrod Heritage Group, to preserve the last remaining Nimrod at RAF Kinloss - XV244. Recently one of the last Sea Kings often seen in the air around Moray has been saved and brought to Kinloss. The new premises opened on 25 March 2016 at Morayvia Sci-Tech Experience Project, North Road, Kinloss, Moray IV36 3YA. Click on the pic for more information.
