Västra Gästrike Flygklubb

Västra Gästrike Flygklubb was formed in 1960 and has about 100 members.

The airfield
We own our own airfield, Lemstanäs airfield and are ideally working associations with the task of safeguarding members' interest in aviation. Västra Gästrike Airline operations include model and motor flights. The sailing flight section is from now dormant.

The model flight section is based on a separate grass path apart from the big planes. Education is conducted by means of a double command. There is a very active activity and with a clear environmental objective, mostly electrically driven engines are used in the model planes.

The motor flight section has a low-wing 4-seater Piper PA28-161 TDI (SE-LXR) and a high-winged 2-seater ultralight CTSW (SE-VGU).

Västra Gästrike Flygklubb is one of the few aeroclubs in Sweden that only uses environmentally friendly fuels in our aircrafts.

The motor flight section has a lively business and performs a lot of assignments in the service of society such as, for example, forest fire surveillance, marine surveillance, power and rail inspection after severe storms in the FFK region. FFK is a voluntary organization linked to the armed forces and civil authorities.

Västra Gästrike Flygklubb carries out training for ultralight motor air certificates. You must have completed the age of 17 to get a certificate, but you can start the education at the age of 16, and the requirements are about the same as for a driving license.

For members wishing to train for PPL / LAPL, this is done in cooperation with Centurio Flight Training AB, an ATO (Approved Training Organization). The training will then take place on our Pipe PA28-161 TDI (SE-LXR).
