Thinking about flying somewhere for the day/afternoon in February. Does anyone have any ideas for a mini meet up perhaps one Sunday? Open to ideas!!

Happy new year folks... I am still around.... Lurking mostly...

Any-hoo. I was approached to see if the VAC event in February would be usable as it meets the criteria of February and a Sunday but sadly it is only open to VAC members because of the location (Bicester - still having trouble at Turweston with the planning permission).
Sorry.

Yep I'd be up for a fly-in in February - needs decent weather twice (once to get current and once for the fly-in) so could be tricky given miserable weather for a couple of months now!

Where are we thinking of going?

Exactly our situation. Anybody got any ideas of where to go? Personally I wouldn't want to attempt anything too adverturous given currency and low hours. So far I have mainly stuck to airfields, but if we did pick somewhere private I would probably do a check ride over there first with an instructor.

We are open to suggestions! Where shall we go?
19 Feb is possible - can't see am doing anything besides revising! Wink

Keeping it simple (on airfield landing and a shortish route - but appreciate that there is nowhere that it local to everyone!) increases the likelihood of it happening rather than being cancelled at this time of year!

Local for me means Leicester, Connington, Hinton (no idea whether they are parachuting this time of year?), Turweston (but haven't managed to get there yet), Cranfield if I could afford the landing fees!!! Bit further afield would be Nottingham or Wellesbourne (but not an exciting fly-in for the residents there!)

Or you lot could come to Sywell, I could do a circuit to show willing and meet you for a coffee LOL Very Happy

Hopefully there are others who could attend but would like it to be a bit nearer them? Let us know your suggestions quick - I should be exchanging on my new house tomorrow so if it's further afield I'll get the solicitor to bung a bit more on the mortgage Wink

Oxford Kidlington would probably be along the same lines in landing fees as Cranfield.

What about Booker near High Wycombe. Can't judge distances very well but will have a look on the map.
They have a good bistro type cafe place, along the same lines as Kemble.

Had a look on the map,
Sywell to Booker by road is 62miles
Wellesbourne to Booker is 60 miles
But Costock to Booker by road is 102 miles.

I guess those distances are shortened cause all the bends are smoothed out.

Cheers
Martin

EGBN Nottingham / Tollerton
Sounds good to me....been scheduled to fly there a couple of times as I have projects in Nottingham but WX has always been crap on the day.
Will probably only be 2 POB so happy to pick up 2 on the way.

Nottingham sounds good to me! Now we just have to get hold of an R22... I have heard the food is not so good at the airport so does anyone know different, or is there a pub within walking distance?

What time is everybody thinking of going? Must also remember sunset times...

Just found above site - seems quite comprehensive! Very Happy

The pub, which is stumbling distance off the apron is the Tiger Moth - it's as much a landmark as the airfield itself! Another thing to look for coming from the north is the Holme Pierrepont water sport centre - large area of, er, water - including the downhill lake for canoe slalom...

Hmm - just learned from research that Miah's IS the former Tiger Moth! Trying to find a working map for the place and failing miserably. Oh well.

I can't answer for food at the aiefield cafe, can't say I've ever eaten there.

But, for curry, I think Miah's is very good. And, I think it's actually the nearest restaurant to me... oh well! Wink And, in fairness, they do cater for different tastes, it's not just curry. But, don't you think it's a novel idea to have a curry as a Sunday Lunch? Wink Wink

Somebody mention a diet?

And, recently, there has been a sign at the road entrance to the airfield, advertising another eatery, I think (maybe the airfield cafe?). Haven't ventured that way for a while, but will probably do so on Saturday, I'll take a look.

Ummm, walking distance pubs. Possibly The Goose at Gamston is nearest to the airfield. Never tried it. It'd be just short of a mile away.

Otherwise Tollerton and Plumtree - Foxy and I can vouch for the Griffen in Plumtree. But that's hardly walking distance....
