Flying Club News 18th December

18th December

My temporary home is Bl**dy freezing after the short snow fall, B Flight have decided that this is no fun and have gone on strike! My laptop caught a nasty virus and is now under Bupa laptop care, being nursed back to health as is Andy MCulloch, we wish him a speedy recovery and that all the holes they made in him mend quickly, at least he has a great excuse for lying around the week before crimbo!!
Talking of which we are closed on crimbo day only, please let us have your bookings for the week after. If there are none then we will be closed for that day. Don't forget the last BBQ of 2009 (not that we had many) see below.
  
 Membership form 2010,by clicking this link you can find the new updated, digitally remastered HD version on the web site , if you fill this in and pay on line
(it would help us a lot if you could pay using your debit card please) Your details will then form part of the new database.
  
You re-learn every day
what caused the rough running on G-BTUW last week?
Symtoms were, engine note was not as normal, but started fine
carb heat had normal effects, rough running thoughout power range but improved when mixture learned back! Engine continued to run when mixture fully off and throttle fully back.
Answers by e-mail from those of you that were not here at the time?
  
 
Sunset
The good news is that we start putting on a minute a day on the sunset time from Monday, talking of which.
Sunset is the back on the ground time!, make sure you have time to go around before this time. The local action group have just lost the appeal against Vision Motorsport and could be looking for an easy target....DONT LET IT BE YOU!  if you don't want Phill, Andy and myself living with you then take heed, the sunset times WE WORK TO are posted on the notice board.
 
Last BBQ of the year
As usual we will have the last BBQ of the year between crimbo and new year (30th from 13.00-15.00) if there is any interest, we need to have at least 15 munchers for it to be viable, let us know in the usual manner by e-mail with how many want to eat. The Bar will be open and will have a film show of something for you to cheer at! Hurrah.
 
 
Aerial Photography Evening
