Depends when tbh. I’m pretty solidly booked at the moment and all my gear has been packed away for over a month

Shame on you! Before the end of the good weather.

Not by choice dude. Just really busy atm. Might getting out with a fixed wing tomorow for an hour if I can finish the pile of stuff I need to accomplish first

Some GADC members have flown there in the past, they may be up for a re-visit @notveryprettyboy :smiley:

I think I need to check this out this weekend. Thank you @PingSpike. The second website in your first post was real good. Bookmarking.

We could pencil in w/e 24th or the following weekend. I’ll try a poll thingy.

ADMIN EDIT: Poll moved to first post to aid visibility

Just moved your poll to the first post @notveryprettyboy - it’ll get lost in the middle of the thread otherwise :slight_smile:

I should be able to make either the sat or Sunday 31st or the 1st

I’d love to meet up with some of you guys …my only concern is no fly area around East Midlands airport as it is pretty close by… I can’t check to be sure currently…I am out of the country until mid August however, but definitely count me in…work permitting

Yeah its pretty tight. It may be worth me asking permission. I do actually know a flight controller who works there…

Any other takers? @Proteous which dates are good for you. Just bumping it up in the listing!

Most Saturday or Sunday mornings are good with me… I say most, what i mean is, they are my days off, and they are the days i plan to do things.
