Flying Club News 26th November

yet another bright, cold but beautiful day up here, where are YOU!!!! and just a week before the crimbo bash, which if you didn't know is next Friday we need you menu choices by Wednesday close of business please. the menu is attached.
 
Poppy Appeal
we raised £33.15 this year which is a bit down on last year but every little helps, thank you to those who donated, your contributions will be put to great use, so thank you.
We also have a permanent collection point at the front door for the British Legion. Any spotter who wants to have a look around has to make a donation, which is great way of collecting money for the BL throughout the year.
 
G-BTUW & G-VMJM
if any of you can remember this lovely aircraft, the news is that the final part has left Piper and should be here in a week. Once fitted we should see her back here in less than a week......we hope.  Hurrah
Sadly the news is not so good on VMJM, it looks like we will not be seeing her until after crimbo, but she will be back...Hurrah
 
Spitfire Squadron
This has gone down a storm, if you haven't heard the plan is to b uild 12 90% scale replica Spitfires and operate them as a Squadron called "City of Oxford" training the pilot/builders to gain their CAA display authority, these pilots would fly formation at events all over the UK and Europe.
 
I thought this was brilliant...
 
I have just read your article in the December issue of Pilot, sadly I
made the mistake of letting my wife see it and I am sorry to say that
she regards your article as the most irresponsible piece of journalism
she has seen in a long time. To put such temptation in the way of
someone who will be so easily swayed is, in her opinion, frankly
unforgivable.
 
Interested visit www.spitfireclub.co.uk 
 

In my opinion, however, it is one of the finest ideas I have read
since I was old enough to know what a Spitfire is.

Flying Club News 12th November

the firework display was fantastic as were Fiona's sausage rolls, my thanks to those members who made a contribution it made a real difference. Many thanks again to Fiona and all the contributors, we will do it all again next year.
The next pilots in the pub is last one of the year and is on the Friday as its the crimbo bash & awards night (the menu is attached) please make your selection and email your choices and the name of who they are for please!
  
Crimbo Vouchers
giving someone something that they will remember for the rest of their lives is a rare experience. We are lucky that we get to do this on a regular basis with first flight vouchers. Think about someone who you would like to give this unique gift to this crimbo......or suggest it when you hear the phrase " i don't know what to give them this year" or just give them my phone number 01608 678204 and I'll suggest it !!!!!!!
  
Club Mugs
Looks like we will be seeing the mugs next week, subject to there not being the usual production problems. Hurrah.
  
Shooting Stars
Paul Hickley gained his PPL this week congratulations and Hurrah to Paul, we should have another this weekend if the unmentionable stuff is kind to us?
  
Night Ratings
with the clocks going back we shall be starting night ratings courses shortly, give me a call or drop me an e-mail if you would like to add or re validate this rating.
  
Sunset
with the evenings drawing in and frequent cloud cover, it is getting darker earlier so please make sure you are back in good time, for those lucky fellows who use the hangar it gets dark in there even sooner!!!!
  
 
 
Half Price flying
we have aircraft going back and forward for maintenance, if you fancy some cheap flying in the fleet let me know. We will publish flights in advance, you only pay half the AGREED flight time to and from Coventry, Sywell or Cranfield.
