Hi Simon and welcome to GADC.


Hi Simon, welcome. I’m in Horsley Woodhouse, lived in Chad as a kid and often travel in to Derby. I tend to fly in the Peak District in the early morning but I’m always looking for new places. One gets a bit tired of green hills after a while. If you fancy meeting up anytime just drop me a line. Cheers Steve

Appreciate that Steve. I know what you mean about green hills and trees. Nothing more I like than getting to the coastline or any kind of water to be honest. Just a great reset for me.

Have a great weekend

Good Afternoon all,

New east midlands based owner here, just looking to see if anyone still meets up to fly close to Castle Donington at all?
