Light Aircraft Association

  Welcome to the website of the
LAA Suffolk Coastal Strut

The Suffolk Coastal Strut welcomes members from not only Suffolk, but also Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. We have members with aircraft based at Crowfield, Elmsett, Great Oakley, Headcorn, Hinderclay Meadows, Lavenham, Monewden, Nayland, Old Buckemham, Priory Farm, Seething, Tibbenham, Wolves Hall, Wormingford and a number of private strips & locations.

We hold monthly meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and an annual flyin at Monewden in July.

For those not familiar with a Strut, it is a self supporting club within the LAA. It elects its own officers for the necessary duties, and charges a small subscription to cover costs. Currently the subscription is 20 per annum.

The strut provides social evenings, and organises visiting speakers, the showing of video's, fly-outs during the better weather, and other similar events.

If you are considering building an aircraft, already own one, or wanting to be part of a group share, or just love talking about real aeroplanes then becoming a member of the LAA and your local Strutis a must. Within the LAA, local struts form the backbone of light aircraft flying, and provide a discussion forum for like minded individuals. Within the average strut there is a wealth of knowledge, information, and experience available - feel free to come and tap into it.

The LAA website is a great source of information, it also has a list of struts around the country if you are not local to Suffolk Coastal.
