Me and the girlfriend are going to this on the sunday. Im also driving from coventry but am concerned with parking. Does any one know how easy it is to park and is there a cost? I would like to know ASAP to plan ahead.
I was up there today, weather was good. Seemed to be lots of aircraft movements. Sadly, I drove.
A number of trade shows (most doing show specials on various bits), I have to admit I thought it would be larger. Mostly fixed wing with a few heli bits and bobs. Every heli movement got the cameras going though
Enjoyed the day, and came away a little less well off than when I arrived.
Parking no problem, it has yellow signs up when you get near telling you where to go.
Well, David Clarke gave me a free set of Gel Ear seals for my headset (£25 worth) - didn't ask, just handed them over as I was asking a question over my headset. Also handed over a small screwdriver set which fits in the palm of your hand.
A new pair of sunglasses, which hook round my ears and don't get in the way of a headset seal (Serengeti Polit 1). I noticed that the Aviation Optical people were there, and on my hit list for the show. They will haggle
Lastly, signed up to start groundschool with CAPT. Phil Croucher was there, but outside the show (if he reads this, Hi!). They didn't advertise that they were there, but you have to walk past them to get in. Seems like a nice chap, knows his stuff and I liked the way the course is run and the material provided. Anyway, that will keep me of the streets for some months to come.
