The Gloster Strut is a local aviation group affiliated to the Light Aircraft Association and based in the Gloucestershire area. We cater for all aviation enthusiasts, from spotter to builder, taking in balloonists, trainee pilots, PPL holders and gyroplane exponents. Our Strut is open to all, and actively supports education through projects such as Young Aviators, Aviation Weekends for Scouts, and via the Education Strut.


We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at The Victory Club , Burlington House , Lypiatt Rd. Cheltenham , Glos . GL50 2SY, starting at 7.30pm. Our strut has over 100 members, with a healthy proportion of members at each meeting.


Several of our members have built their own aircraft; others are working on restoration projects either of their own or in museums. We have an active group interested in flying trips. Our membership includes many members with specialist skills, including LAA inspectors, coaches and flying instructors.
