Brize Norton and Oxford airspace grab

Hi All

Brize Norton and Oxford aerodromes are trying to grab huge new amounts of airspace. Anyone in the club who flies XC from Thames Valley sites will be adversely affected.

Hmm, looks like fees are going up. If you got the cheaper 'over 60' rate, you now need to be over 67...

Hello Fellow Flyer.

It's that time again, when the nights start drawing in, to make plans for the winter migration.

South India offers fantastic weather, lovely people, stunning scenery, delicious food, excellent value for money and is one of the nicest places we've flown.
