Linköping Flying Club – LFK – was founded in 1933 and is one of Sweden´s oldest and largest flying clubs. We operate from the Saab Airport in Linköping, Sweden. Our closest neighbours are the aircraft manufacturer Saab and Linköping City Airport with daily scheduled passenger flights with KLM to Amsterdam and SAS to Copenhagen.
Today LFK has approximately 320 members. We work in close cooperation with the other flying clubs and private owners of general aviation aircraft in Linköping, with a total of 500 members and 40 aircraft.
LFK provides basic flight training for students aiming for a PPL – Private Pilot License or an IR – Instrument Rating. We also train pilots in formation flying, aerobatics and VFR night flying. If you want to experience what it is like to fly, you can get a trial lesson in the air with one of our instructors.
LFK supports the local community by providing an airborne forest fire surveillance service during the warm and dry periods of the summer. We also support the Swedish Armed Forces with aircraft for use by the FFK, the Swedish Volunteer Air Corps.
Linköping has one of the major universities in Sweden. LFK has close connections to the academic aeronautical club at the University, LuFF. The members of LuFF regularly uses LFK aircraft for their activities.
Today we have four aircraft in use for training or for renting by members of the club. One Garmin G500 equipped Diamond DA-20 Eclipse and three Piper PA-28 Archer II/Cadet. We also have a certified simulator that we use for instrument training.
We also have a Piper PA-18 Super Cub that is undergoing a major reconstruction work by members of the club.
