Pilot exam

25 Feb 2016 - 20:00
25 Feb 2016 - 22:00

The plan is to set the Pilot exam on the night of 25th Feb (last thursday in Feb) at Glynde Social club.

Anyone wanting to take this exam needs to get me their BHPA number and name by the end of 18th Feb so I have time to get the details to the BHPA and get the exams back.

(I dont have them I have to apply to the BHPA who send them to me with your name and number on them)

To sit the exam you need to have completed the tasks in your handbook.

If you have done them but not got them signed off then bring your task book and log book along and it can be sorted out on the night.

RRC weekend13th -14th feb

13 Feb 2016 - 00:00
14 Feb 2016 - 00:00

I think this weekend looks rubbish already ,the weather is on the mend ,but still going to be testing for our sport,well that just about covers my rear end,for a heads up.
There might be a look in mid week ,but looks like a south to South west wind,i will be watching regularly to see if theres any chance of flying,you too must do your own assumptions on the weather ,as im not going to let on mid week ,as the last time i booked a mid week rrc ,it got blown out.
i will post fri night if theres a hope of a rrc day...dont hold your breath.

RRC weekend 6th -7th feb

I feel that i seem to be posting the same old bad weather report for each coming weekend,this stands true for this looming weekend and ,days either side.
One Tuesday i will bring a optimistic weather report,but until then just watch flying vids and dream.Its very good to do this ,or study weather internet sites or books because when the weather does break, your brain will need to focus on your active skill of flying your wing ,and all the weather stuff will be less of an issue as you will be masters at reading the sky you are playing in.

The sooner this month, like the previous three ,pass by ,the better. February must have some better days,rather then the odd fickle flying window of opportunity.
Do i need to say what awaits us this weekend ,but if the forecast is totally wrong ,you will be the first too know ,when i post an update fri night.Till then guys ,dont forget this Thursdays induction, and what ever that Mr john T has in store later on in the evening.

28 Jan 2016 - 19:30
28 Jan 2016 - 21:30


The last of the lectures at Glynde Social. The talk will be from 8 pm to 9.30pm

7.30 to 8 is induction for new members.

I will be finishing at 9.30 as I have to be up extremely early the next day. ( about 4 am) So if anyone feels up to taking this talk the please let me know as it would be a great help.

The plan is to get the exams done in February, so for anyone wanting to do that check your task book and make sure you have all the tasks done.
Not done = No EXAM

( you can always take it later in the year once your tasks are done)
