Training on the Super Decathlon takes place at Cumbernauld airport, which is conveniently situated in central Scotland, roughly midway between Glasgow and Stirling off the main motorway network. It is also easily accessible from Edinburgh.
It is a busy and well serviced GA field with one east / west tarmac runway, good hangarage, fire service and an excellent on site cafe and aviation shop, with Leading Edge and the Cumbernauld flying club operating from there as well as PDG helicopters.
Despite its location off a busy road network and on the edge of an industrial park, it enjoys a pleasant outlook to the rolling landscape of the Campsie hills, south of Stirling and is just minutes flight time from the famous and historic hilltop castle and the nearby Wallace monument. Free airspace north of Glasgow's control zone, less than a five minute flight from the field, allows for efficient use of your flight time and a good aerobatic training area.
Time spent on the ground won't be lost either, with the beautiful and famous Loch Lomond lying in the nearby Trossachs National Park, local historic attractions of Stirling, the gentle countryside of Strathallan, not to mention easy access to Scotland's Capital, your flying course could easily form part of a wider holiday to the heartland of Scotland.
If you wish to stay close to the airfield itself, then there are a number of local accommodation options. Your Leading Edge representative can advise you on this when you finalise your booking arrangements.
A little known, well serviced airfield ideal for training and placed in the heart of Scotland.
