Martin, I think that's going to depend on exactly how the pilots are routing into the site - and I haven't really looked at a chart so haven't made any decisions about what I would do!

For example though, if you're approaching from the south or west, it would be reasonable to be talking to Shobdon.

As I haven't looked, I don't know how far away from Birmingham's zone it is, but I can imagine I might at least try for an information service from them on the transit, given that I would be flying from the East - if it's in reasonable proximity, then maybe a let-down call to them would be in order.

Around that area I find London Information is the best frequency to be on, as Shobdon often don't say much and it's better to be talking to someone who can give a flight information service. Close to the site I would change to the Safetycom frequency given the amount of potential helicopter traffic inbound to the hotel, just to warn eveyone else we're letting down.

But you're all pilots - you can make your own decisions about who you talk to! Just to stress that we are not "organising" this it's just everyone meeting up for a couple of festive days in Shropshire!! It's your own responsibility to do your planning and if the weather looks iffy there's always plan B - drive!

Looking forward to it!

Sarah

Just a quick update... I have heard there are two rooms left for the Christmas party. If anyone is interested in joining us please give the hotel a call asap as they will otherwise let the rooms go to non-helitorquers.

Give Neil a call on 01568 770 033 and mention you'd like to book for the Helitorque Party on the 13th December.

Be great to see you there!

Sarah

Just a quick update, WhirlyGuy and myself are hoping to fly in.

Is anybody else flying or are you all driving? Can you post here or pm me if you're flying just so I know how many we're expecting.

Also, is anybody coming along for the dinner who is not staying over night at the hotel. The guys at the hotel would really appreciate some kind of list from me, so if anyone who is attending next week can pm me and let me know how many are staying over night, and how many dinner places you require that would help me out greatly.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you all next week!

Sarah

P.S. there might be a room or two left if any last minute changes to your schedules mean you can now make it along! Call the hotel to check and then let me know.

I still don't have a definite list of who is:

a) Coming to dinner
b) Staying at the hotel
c) Flying in (maybe nobody is?)

Please send me a pm asap so I can let the hotel know how many to set the table for. It's not too late to join us if anybody still wants to come along, but you do need to let me know as soon as.

Thanks!

Sarah

Duh! I meant he hasn't flown with me since I've been instructing! Now I'm going to be the whining voice in his left ear!
