A great social occasion. The opportunity to visit somewhere different. A way to get more out of your flying.
PPL’s, aircraft owners, student pilots, instructors are all welcome. Each fly-out will be coordinated by an instructor or experienced club member. Pilots are responsible for booking a club aircraft (if required) and for their own pre-flight planning. For those who want it, we can provide guidance on a suitable route, RT calls to ATC etc.
We particularly want to encourage recently PPL’s to join. Fly on your own or team up with a friend and fly a leg each. The destinations flown will count towards the Bronze award in the Andrewsfield Flight Levels scheme.
Club members flying 4-seaters have in the past generously invited students to come along as a passenger. Even in the early stages of training, most students agree that this broadens their experience of flying and gives them a strong motivation to progress towards cross-country flying.
We aim to offer a mix of short trips (approx. 1 hour each way) as well as some longer day trips.
In past years, trips have included
• Lee on Solent for a fish and chip lunch
• Fenland for afternoon tea
• Bentwaters to visit the Cold War museum
• Wickenby for tea and a look at the museum in the tower
• Le Touquet for lunch, shopping and the beach
