Next Meeting 21st August:

Your Rust Remover using "Smart Pilot" and Rob Fleck as the presenter.



 Thank you everyone who supported the Members Fly Day & BBQ.  It was a great success.


Meeting started with a (very) brief chat but then it is the member's fly day.


This was a little different from what you expect :-)  First, we asked members with flying aircraft to bring them to the chapter hangar if they were willing to take other members up for a ride. That's the normal part. The different part was that the members themselves decide who they want to fly with and go tag that pilot and his aircraft. As long as the flight would be safe (W&B, etc), then away they would go.


Around noon there was a free BBQ.


For all other events please checkout the Event Calendar
