The first Event for 2018, in January, was a navigation exercise to test your Dead Reckoning skills. Members were required to fly an accurate heading for a precise time, and should have found themselves where they intended to be! If not - problem! Good for training for newbies and oldies alike! Here is the Briefing.
14th Birthday Celebrations
The February 2018 Event was the traditional live Airshow by our 2-4-CIX Display teams using JoinFS. Three separate JoinFS recordings have been made of the various parts of the show - Part1, Part2 and Part3.
Ben and Jon's Adventures
Our March event was a blatant copy of some real world
flights which are published on YouTube. Here is the Briefing.
Farewell to Biggin Hill
After 14 years flying out of Biggin Hill Airport, the Club is closing its base there. So this April, on 23rd, we move all our aircraft north to our new base at Sherburn=in-Elmet. Here is the Briefing.
Our May 2018 event took us on an exploration of the country
north and east of our new Club Base at Sherburn-in-Elmet. Here
is the Briefing.
Our June 2018 event needed a clear head and a sharp brain.
All our members have both, naturally, so get (code) cracking
and enjoy the flight. Here is the Briefing.
More Mel's Mad Mondays
From Shoreham, we flew
a grand anticlockwise circle round busy
Gatwick's airspace. Some were brave enough to fly through
it (with ATC clearance of course). An
overhead join on arrival at Shoreham was mandatory. Here is the Briefing.
Come Along to my House...
Chatteris airfield? Few people have probably heard of this small grass airfield, but it is near John Lygo's house, so we paid him a visit. Here is the Briefing.
Return to Jersey
For September, we revisited Jersey, a lovely island we hadn't
visited for 10 years as a Club event. The route took the shortest
over-water crossing available without going up to Dover. Here
is the Briefing.
Whilst the big tin VATSIM pilots fly into Manchester Airport
EGCC during the VATSIM annual "Across the Pond" event, we will
fly into next-door Barton EGCB in our light singles and twins,
keeping well out of their way, but enjoying the challenge of
following the correct "Listening
for VFR traffic flying near EGCC. Here is the Briefing.
