Flying evenings for Friends and Visitors


Postby ls7 » Sat Feb 19, 2011 11:00 pm


Dear Members,

Below are some notes about the arrangements for Group Flying this year. I apologise if they seem over-detailed or formal but thought it best to try and set out some clear procedures. My thanks in advance for your support with this crucial fund-raising activity.

Please do give me a call if you have any comments.

    • Please would members use me as the point of contact for Visitor Flying; Alex Eden 07773 094989 has kindly agreed to deputise in my absence.
    • Friday night groups should normally comprise up to 12 people but more can be accommodated by arrangement.
    • Sat/Sun groups should be limited to 6 people (so as not to compromise Club flying) and sessions will normally start at 3pm.
    • Buffets/bar-b-q will generally be available only on Saturday evenings, starting around 8pm. The cost will be £6.50. Visitors are of course welcome to use our bar after flying on any day.
    • Once the date has been agreed, I will enter the details in the table below.
    • The cost is £20 for the first winch launch, then Club Rates (£4.50) if time permits a second launch. If conditions dictate aerotow only, the first flight will be £20, any subsequent flights at Club Rates (£10/1000’ and £7 per 1000’ thereafter). Fees include one month’s membership, which will not normally be extended.
    • Please would hosts:
      o Endeavour to contact me at least 14 days before the flying so that we can confirm dates and organise instructors etc.
      o Endeavour to provide a list of attendees and vehicle registration numbers to the guardroom ( or, for last minute changes, 01780 783838 Ext 7670 at least 48 hrs before the event, together with your own contact details..
      o Provide me with the names of anyone wanting the buffet/bar-b-q by 7pm on the preceding Thursday evening.
      o Ensure that every guest is escorted from the Guardroom to the Launchpoint, and subsequently off the station.
      o Provide guest with your phone details and the launch point number: 07813 542884
      o Remind visitors to bring:
        • Payment for the flying and any food.
        • Photo ID in the form of a passport or photographic driving licence.
        • Warm clothes, sunglasses if needed, and please remind ladies to wear trousers/jeans.
        • Appropriate shoes – explain to visitors that high heels aren’t good on grass, steel toes aren’t good for gliders.
        • Camera, should they so wish - but remind them to tell the instructor before the flight.
