PS: Are the HeliTorque baseball caps going to be ready by then, W'Gal?
Yep, sure are!! Watch this space... those of you coming to Weston-Super-Mare will be able to get a sneak peak (peak - get it?!!) lol!
As for HeliTech, I plan to be attending for all three days, promoting HeliTorque, so I don't mind which day we meet up, however if you could all post your plans and availability maybe we can arrange one of the days to have a bit of a get-together.
They basically release all the information about arriving and departing, holding, reporting etc, and everything else you need to know.
They ask you when you call to book whether you have read the AIC. If you haven't they won't take the booking, and will ask you to go away and read it.
There are quite a few important notes in there. For example, they have two departure points, east and west, and you have to depart VIA one of them, and stipulate it when you book, so they know how much traffic will be going off in any direction at any time etc.
It all sounds a bit over the top, but they are very good at handling there.
One of the main reasons for all of it is that you can't approach from the North at all, due to stuff there that they don't want you flying over, and other obstacles and restrictions nearby.
One other thing.....they give you something like a 15 minute slot to arrive in.....if you are very late, they WILL turn you away and won't let you in. It may be 30 mins, but I can't remember. So be warned, and plan your route carefully! At the very least, they reserve the right to refuse anyone entry, and the PPR booking is no guarantee. But they do thry their best to accommodate. _________________ Adam Bailey
