Flying Weeks 2024

For those who are planning their year ahead I am planning on holding three week long Flying Weeks this summer. This is an opportunity, especially if you are early in your training, to consolidate your flying over a short period. During these weeks members may book multiple days.
Provisional dates are:
June 17-21
July 15-19
These dates will be confirmed closer to the time.

Zoom Talk Recordings

The recorded zoom talks are now available to view in the Zoom Talks page

Student Bookings - one at a time please

Please note that ONLY ONE TRAINING SESSION should be booked in advance for normal flying days (ie Weekends and Wednesdays.) This is to allow all members equal opportunities to book sessions with the duty instructors.

It is also important to turn up whenever you have booked in as, even if flying isn’t possible, the duty instructor will be there to offer any ground instruction. If you are unable to come on a booked date, please remove your name from the diary immediately so another member can take up the session.

The single session limit doesn’t apply to the flying weeks, but first check with the organising instructors or diary to find out the aims of the week. (Some weeks have the main focus on soaring tasks and basic instruction may not be available.)

Existing members should mention all of this to new members whenever they explain use of the Club’s on-line diary.
