End Of Gliding At Bicester?

Sad news. I did two courses there in the 70s.

Sad although I understand there will still be some privately owned gliders there but how will they be launched? Powered aircraft will still operate around the motor racing like they do at Goodwood and Thruxton.
Maybe the RAFGSA Centre will move back from Halton when it closes in 2025.

They have a Supermunk on lease from HusBos. The RAFGSA will never return and JSAT(G) (as was) is now at RAF Syerston.
