Events & Fly-outs

Why not join us on our monthly fly outs!

A great way to venture further afield to explore the UK and neighbouring countries – in the company of other club members. These trips are just perfect for building your confidence and your hours, with help at hand if you need it – with a range of trips from ‘fairly local’ to ‘far away’. Fun, informal, and friendly and a great way to learn from others’ experience.

Our 2015 destinations included Compton Abbas, Dunkeswell, Caernarfon, Sandown, Alderney, Old Sarum and Llanbedr. There are usually a couple of overseas club fly outs organised each year, taking two or three days-for the more adventurous. A tour of Scotland is planned for 2016.

With advance planning, you can book the Club aircraft – buddy up with another member to share the cost and the flying; or there may be a spare seat in one of the syndicate or privately owned aircraft.

Watch this space on the website and the notice board in the club house for further information – or contact the Club if you have ideas of places to visit or need any further information.
