Early Doors Discount Flying!

Postby Pete » Sat Jun 25, 2011 9:06 pm

Hello all,

Following a few discussions around the club, at the recent committee meeting, a proposal to introduce off-peak flying rates earlier in the morning was made.
This proposal was discussed and agreed at the meeting, and the result is as follows:

- Any winch launch taken before 11am on a flying day will cost £2.52 (an odd number due to LogStar working in percentages rather than numbers!)
- Any winch launch taken before 11am on a flying day which lasts longer than 10 minutes, will not incur soaring charges.

The rationale behind this is, quite obvously, an attempt to encourage an earlier start to flying, and to get that all important first winch launch going at the beginning of the day. We've all seen times where everything is out, but no one can be encouraged to make the first move!

Until there are a few flights done under this system I'm not sure exactly how it will work, for instance, if someone soars from 10:45 to 11:15, do they get charged for the 15 minutes past 11am flown... We shall have to see how it works out.

This system has already been implemented on the laptop, and supposedly a couple of cheap flights were achieved this morning!

Any questions, queries or comments, feel free to fire them my way!
