If you fancy popping along this Saturday we've got about 2 places left. Otherwise there are the other dates as published on the website. PM me for details if you're interested.

Off the top of my head, with the current fuel surcharge situation, I'm not sure to be honest. If you fill in the registration form for one of the seminars though, I'll make sure someone in the office sends you a full price list so you have an idea of the cost.

By the way, we might be coming to invade your neck of the woods soon - planning a mountain flying course over near Snowdon. If we do manage to come across during November you should come and meet up with us one of the nights. We'll probably be staying at one of the local guest houses.

This place at Capel Curig is also helicopter friendly and they do excellent food and a huge range of unusual whisky (not that any pilot will be trying that out!). http://www.tyn-y-coed.co.uk/ Have had several very pleasant evenings here.

They have their own field directly across the road where there would be room for a couple of R44s.

Maybe a future outing trip could be a pub crawl around Snowdonia!

Definitely. We're looking at the Stables for accommodation at the moment, but always open to suggestions. Don't really know many places in the area.

As we'll be there over at least two day, lunch at your place sounds like a great option Paul!

Guys,

Thanks for the links. The stables is the one we've been looking at. Flown into Seiont Manor myself but paid 30 for sandwiches and tea, so not hopeful on room prices being too affordable!!!
