The Club

The club is called the Glasgow Airport Aviation Enthusiasts Club (shortened to GAAEC) and has been running since the airport opened in 1966, having had several clubrooms over the years at varying sites and of various sizes. Currently we have premises in Abbotsinch Rd, adjacent to the General Aviation Terminal, where Area J and the runway can be seen. It is limited by premises safety to 50 full members, although we currently have a small number of vacancies for membership.
