Flying Club News 26th February

if you were at the air to air photo presentation last evening then you will know what a brilliant event this was. Keith and Ollie put together some fabulous images which kept the gathering spellbound for 2 hours. Explaining how Keith got the images was just as incredible as the aircraft in the photos. A great evening which will be followed up with a practical course on photographing aircraft. It will be a day long course with the opportunity to learn how to get the best shots from the ground and air, if you would be interested in receiving more information then drop us an e-mail to info@enstoneflyingclub.co.uk

Pilots in the Pub 4th March
Next Thursday is Pilots in the pub with a difference! A team of marketing students from Oxford Brookes University will be coming along to find some members who would be willing to answer questions and or join a focus group. The results of their research will help the club offer better services and facilities to excising members and encourage new ones to join. It is important that we get as many members along so that the team have a broad cross section of the membership present. If you haven't got the date in your diary its the 4th March at the Crown.
Flyout Calendar
we want your ideas on some destinations for flyouts this season, students and members can use these as valuable experience to improve their flying skills. We are looking for week day, weekend and with a couple of overnight sorties. If it goes ahead this year Avaranches should be on this year. Let us know your ideas by e-mail info@enstoneflyingclub.co.uk
