Next Star Event
Our February event is our traditional Air Show, known colloquially as the Birthday Bash, as it celebrates, (this year) our 14th birthday. Like Her Majesty the Queen, we have an official birthday, which is the 7th of February, and this year, rarely, the Birthday Bash falls on Wednesday the 7th. This year it will be held at RAF Fairford (EGVA) in Gloucestershire. Here is the Briefing.
Latest Star Event
The first Event for 2018, in January, is a navigation exercise to test your Dead Reckoning skills. Fly an accurate heading for a precise time, and you should find yourself where you intended to be! If not - your problem! Good for training for newbies and oldies alike! Here is the Briefing.
The original 93 UK Farms Strips developed by Gerry Winskill, and the 10 developed by Pete Chapman, have been re-organised. The Farm Strips page gives the complete itinerary in groups, starting from Gloucestershire, and finishing eventually at Biggin Hill. A more formal start was made in January 2015. Usually two groups were assigned each month. Monthly assignments were shown on the Locations page, and details were discussed in the forum. Whilst that cycle has been completed, it is still possible to make your way round the planned route.
Club activities are discussed in the forum, which is open to club members only. These include a number of informal club events each of which is organised by an individual member or a small group of members. Some are short lived, but others turn into long running group activities. The more structured or recently active informal events are listed here with links to relevant forum topics for club members.
