Flight diary details
Date of Flight: 
19 Nov 2017
Takeoff site: 
Devils Dyke

Dyke Ridge Run - surprisingly good day compared to what I expected. There was about 1.5 hours where it was moderately thermic and out and return was possible along the ridge. I was pleased to see quite a few people go for it with varying degrees of success and a few I expect with a longish walk back. Fron't of take off was incredibly crowded and as usual airmanship was not up to everyone's expectation.

Induction and first of the pilot lectures Air law and navigation

30 Nov 2017 - 19:30
30 Nov 2017 - 21:30

OK. Induction for new members from 7.30 till 8 pm and then the start of the pilot lectures.
It will be at Glynde Social club as usual.

For any CP wanting or even vaguely thinking of becoming Pilot rated next year over winter we run a series of 3 lectures covering the three different areas of the Pilot Exam.

And it all kicks off with Air law and navigation.

We go through each part of the syllabus to help you understand the various topics.
Its not a replacement to your own study but it certainly helps.

Even if you are already Pilot rated but want to brush up then come along.

There will be a BHPA coaching course in December. The venue is going to be Fly Sussex. The course is free for SHGC members.

This is for CPs or Pilots who want to coach for the club. Also, if you are an existing coach and have not done a coaching course in the last 4-5 years then you will need to update. We only run thee once every couple of years so bear that in mind.

Space on these courses is limited so book sooner rather than later. While the course is free please dont put your name down unless you are definitely going

Membership Renewals

Please can everyone check to make sure that you have renewed your 2017/2018 SHG Club membership, particularly if you do not have a standing order in place. There are currently 128 'members' who have not renewed in this current membership year. Whilst I know that some will have consciously decided not to renew, others may simply have forgotten (there are some 'seasoned' names on this list). Renewing your membership is simple and straightforward if you follow the steps and links on the SHGC website.
