Leaving the Hill

30 Apr 2009 - 19:30
30 Apr 2009 - 23:00

Carlo Borsattino will be heading an informal presentation on leaving the hill for the first time... with the usual audience participation. The new season is just getting underway, and this meeting is directed at those pilots whose desire it is to go XC from our sites for the first time, or those that just need an update. Weather forecasts, equipment, picking your time, airspace; whatever your questions or concerns with "leaving the hill", come and digest some words of wisdom over a beer.

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.
