Flying club News 25th June

Well the budget has come and gone and as expected we will all work longer, be expected to work harder for less and pay more ... so nothing new there then!

The unmentionable stuff has been absolutely glorious this week and sadly not many of you have been able to enjoy it but B flight have loved it and are now making honey which I hope will tide them through the winter.

The work party for the access road has been cancelled for this weekend as Aero fair is on at Booker and many people are visiting that show,( its also going to be hot enough to boil a Monkeys B*m tomorrow and not condusive to manual labour) I shall be visiting it myself today and will produce a report for those of you who are unable to go. We will go for next weekend which will be 3 July.
Pilots in the Pub 1st July
pop this is your diary see Events below for details.

Check your licence

can you all please have a look at your licences to check the following,
1.  your medical is valid
2. your single engine piston rating is also valid.
Even though you may have done the 12 hours, 12 takeoffs and landings and one hour with an instructor you must have your licence signed off by Richard Pitts the CFI and the paperwork sent to Gatwick.

Social Team

As a result of the market research program carried out by Oxford Brookes University we will be putting a team together comprising of members, instructors, students and social members etc the team's brief will be to promote and help the social side of the flying club. With such things as fly outs fly ins barbecues etc the team will have access to the club website and forum where members can make suggestions, solutions and ideas. To make the team really effective we will need representatives from each section of the club, if you would like to be part of this very special team then please let me know.
