You really don't know what you're missing TC - it's worth waiting for.

Although, you could see it live next time - why don't you come along to Barnsdale Hall in G-SPEY? Please. Wink

Well make sure you come across to the "Hall" rather than the Lodge or you'll probably be having a party all by yourself! We are planning to land on the football field at Barnsdale Hall Hotel.

With regard to the husbands, last time they didn't stop us - they were as eagar to see the can can as everybody else!!

Now back to the Heli Champs.... How many are on your team TC?

The British team will consist of 7 crews and the current World ladies champions who are British. The recent practise events and British championship results will make up part of the decision as to who is picked for the final team. The final decision will be made after the Brits in June and then the team will concentrate on sharpening their skills for August. The Russians have always been a very strong team to beat and spent up to 60 hours practicing prior to the 2002 World Championships and tenths of a second can decide the gold medal winners sometimes.

Each country can supply up to 10 judges who must be on the FAI approved list which is up dated each March. Friends and supporters are also welcome to go and in 2002 the total number for the British team was 48. The cost includes accommodation all meals, transport between the hotel and airfield and any official ceremonies such as the opening and closing ceremony.

Go to the HCGB website and look at the Championship Intropage which has the details of how to register your interest. Also the Download page has information on cost to attend as part of the team and location.

Anyone that wants to be part of the team as competitor, judge or supporter has to go through John Matchett, HeliteamGB manager. His contact email can be found on the HCGB website Contacts page.

I was team manger in 2002 and also organised the last two Brits and the World Championships is great fun mixing with like minded helicopter people from the World over including: Switzerland, Germany, France, Russia, Croatia, Japan, China, USA and a lot more. It???s like the Brits and Helidays but 10 times more fun.

But here's all the info, taken from the HCGB web site, for any non-members. Membership is only ??45 a year for the HCGB, and they have quite a few good events and give out their list of members, including those who have helipads we can all use. Worth joining. Members always welcome. I would happily propose any new member of here, if you want to join:

Netheravon practice weekend 23/24th April

Dear Everyone, A reminder to say we have an important date in the diary for a fully scored and timed practise at Netheravon week end 23/24th April. In addition to the slalom and fender events crews will have the opportunity to practice and be scored on the timed arrival and precision square. The fomat will be practice runs at each event incorporating a timed and scored run at your instigation. Judges will have the opportunity to use scoring and timing procedures that will be applied in the British Championships on June 11/12th and World Championships 16-20th August. We will require assistance from Ground staff so if you know of additional people willing to help please do bring them along. There will briefings on Saturday evening on Forward Team Strategy and on the Sunday events Accommodation is available at the High Post Inn and I recommend an early reservation. The cost of an overnight stay with dinner bed and breakfast is ?? 90 fully inclusive, ??55 sharing. I will be sending you a full programme nearer the date but please plan to arrive between 10.15am and 10.45am for a start at 11.00am on Saturday 23rd. Meantime, very important, can you let me know your intentions and availability by Monday 11th April. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible Best Regards, John



World Helicopter Championships in 2005 at Rouen

Just a note to say on Friday 4th March Alain Bouchez and Jaques Escaffre made a successful proposal to the FAI on behalf of the French Aero Club for running the World Helicopter Championships in 2005 at Rouen. As a result, the organisation of the Championships has been awarded to France and they will be run over 16th-20th August 2005. For further information please take a look at the following websites. www.whc2005.info, www.helico.org, and www.fai.org/rotorcraft/documents/ for the latest rules.



Latest Update on the British Team Practise and The World Championships

Just a note to keep everyone informed of forward plans regarding the British Team. The HCGB willl be running the British Championships over the 10-12th June at Heythrop Park. British Team selection will take place after these Championships. In addition Netheravon will be available for practise on 19th/20th March, 23/24th April, and 15th May. Please note the weekend of April 23rd/24th will be a fully judged and timed pre-trial for the World Championships. I ask those of you who are keen to fly or judge in the British Team, to enter both this session on 23rd/24th April and the British Championships on the 10th-12th June. The final location of the World Championships will be announced after the next FAI meeting on 3rd/4th March. It is planned to run it over 15th- 20th August 2005, and combine it with the FAI Centenary celebrations. Suitable locations are currently being checked out in Northern France. We are looking at possible sites in the Midlands and the North for your own private practice which will I hope save on fuel costs. As soon as there is further news I shall be back in touch. Best Regards John Matchett John.Matchett@thematchettgroup.com
