The Black Mountains Gliding Club has always resided at its highly positioned home 970 feet above sea level. Local farmer Derrick Eckley created Talgarth on part of his farm in 1978, a clubhouse and hanger being built two years later; the club officially joined the British Gliding Association in January 1983. This airfield was initially rather small but has grown over the years, and the club now owns it, having purchased Talgarth from the Eckley family in 1998.
The following organisations are either based at, use and/or have at least potentially significant connections with the airfield (as at 01/07/2013):
- Talgarth Community Council
- Talgarth Library
