Don't forget the new CAA regulations if you are planning to fly in to HELiDAYS!!

You can contact me for a copy of the "Handling and Code of Conduct for Pilots" by email at

office@helidays.freeserve.co.uk

Or visit the website at www.helidays.org

The German and Belgian crews are bringing beer for the barbecue ...

"New CAA regulations" Crying or Very sad A necessary evil perhaps, but just when was the last accident at WSM? (No offence Bee)

Why don't they leave us alone for crying out loud! Evil or Very Mad

I'm getting sick & tired of Health & Safety, Hi-Vis vests, roadworks M25, Gordon Brown, Forces getting shot in Afghanistan and the whole Kitten bloody Capoodle

Uh huh. We've never had an accident at Helidays ... unless you count the time that an Apache came a bit too close to comfort, blew my tent away and distributed all my paperwork over Weston ...

But my comment re "New CAA regulations" refers to the fact that whereas in the olden days you could phone me ten minutes before take-off to let me know you would be landing on site, you now have to complete an application to land form, an indemnity form and a form to declare that you have read the instructions and completed the necessary forms ... However, if you do leave it to the last minute then copies of all the relevant paperwork will be available at the Helicopter Museum, so you can land there, sign your life away and then come and see me on the beach lawns!

Oh and we also have to apply (and pay) for an amendment to Rule 5(3)c to allow you to land in the first place.

But it's all in the interests of health and safety ... oh yes, and don't forget you will need a hi-viz vest to be allowed back to your aircraft. Otherwise I get to keep it. Assuming I remember my hi-viz vest that is ...

i wonder if the stress and concern of filling in the correct paperwork (or not) is adverse to the health and safety of pilots?

Here's a regulation that may work: A pilot should fill out all necessary paperwork required by law to complete the required task, except where (a) this may cause unnecessary stress or pause in thought in which case a pilot is exempt from red tape and must use common sense instead

(b) the paperwork request seems a pointless exercise and a pilot should use common sense instead.

Anyone 2nd that vote?

Count me in!

Bee, Hon - please excuse me if I don't comply - But I just might have a Pan to declare when I'm near WSM - I think my oil temp may suddenly get very high. Thank goodness for all the ground crews, and emergency fire stuff "just over there" Wink

Might even have a Beer or two to calm my nerves when I get it on the ground... Very Happy

Ditto the above.. common sense? Where can I buy a tin of that?

You sure its oil temp TC? I'd go for clutch light myself!! Laughing

I am thinking of coming down, albeit by car, as I have my little boy for the weekend. He loves pointing at helicopters (and sadly also planes, but I'm working on that!), and making an attempt at words!

Anyone recommend a hotel?

Craig, I believe some people have stayed in the Sunfold which is opposite the show area on the seafront.

Doubt it, but depends on the Wx. book early for hotels - they get snapped up rather quickly!

A good point, well made.

I should engage memory before posting!

Any advances on Sunfold in terms of hotels?
