And don't forget our New Year's day traditional meeting at the club when you will have the chance to get 1/1/14 in your log book and there will be mulled wine (for those who have already flown). Aircraft bookings will be on a first come, first served basis on the day.
We had a good evening last night when Dr. Ken Edgington, who is a Consultant in Occupational Medicine, visited the club to give us a talk about aviation medicine and all things related. It was well attended and the mood was festive, helped along by the mince pies and mulled wine!
We have secured some new Alouette clothing which would make a great present for the pilot in your life - or why not buy one for yourself to keep out the cold on those windy days when you are checking out the aircraft?
We have blue Windcheckers, like the one shown, available in a variety of sizes and all with the Alouette logo embroidered on the front. These are really warm, have zip pockets, a breathable lining and are water resistant. These are really good value at £40 each.
Also available we have sweatshirts and polo shirts, also in blue, with the Alouette logo embroidered on them. These are just £15 each.
If you want to try any of these for size or would like to make a purchase, please contact any committee member who will be pleased to help.
Biggin Hill Management offered to provide a coach to any tenants and occupiers of the airport that wanted to attend the Flying Show at the NEC in Birmingham on Saturday 1st December.
As it turned out, only Alouette members took up this offer and we had a coach all to ourselves. In total there were 9 members with 2 guests and Katy Woolcott from the airport team.
It was a great day out, despite the early morning start and everybody had a great time and purchased various “goodies” on offer at the show.
Nice one Biggin!
Recently our Warrior had a scrape around the back of the maintenance hangar. Read flying instructor Bruno's interesting and informative report - and the conclusions he draws from the incident.
An account of a trip to Waterford, finally completed in August 2011 but attempted many, many times before!
