I have a shares in a couple of things at Enstone, There is a share in a PA17 available I believe if you do want to go down that road and it might appeal.
There are three set ups at Enstone:
Enstone Flying Club - the Spitfire builders. Spam cans available there. Motor glider school there too. Quite a few private aircraft of varying types in the hangar. Operate almost exclusively off the north side grass runway now.
Oxfordshire Sport Flying - mostly motor gliders and I think a PA28. Some private aircraft too as well as a microlight school. They use the main runway and the south side grass.
North Side Grass Flyers - no school here, just many various types of private aircraft inside and out as well as maintenance. Very much the more relaxed and informal of the lot, the "clubhouse" being an old bus.
Welcome to the area
