Christmas Caper 2010
This year Richard Sinclair has created one of those fictional story based events which he puts together occasionally and which involves a bit of role-play. So get yourself into a thespian mood, bush-pilot costume and ice-tanned make-up complete, and become a "jobbing" commercial and air taxi pilot flying people and small but important cargoes across British Columbia in a light aircraft. Full details in the Briefing Document.

Push-Ups for Plots: Transit Trauma
Friday 24th September
This month's Push-ups is all about zone Transits. After departing Biggin Hill or Shoreham, you will be required to negotiate a transit through Gatwick's Class D before arriving at Shoreham or Biggin Hill. Then you'll go back again. This will test your skills in accurate navigation, heading and altitude holding, There will be traffic on a reciprocal heading at a similar altitude, so you will need to keep a good lookout. And of course there will also be the regular traffic in and out of Gatwick. Briefing Document by Tim Arnot.
Thursday 15th July
Buckets & Spades all round for this seaside day out. We'll depart Newquay, and follow the Cornish coast before heading out to the Isles of Scilly, for a snack and a game of beach cricket. Then we'll head back to Newquay to catch the last of the day's surf. (or should that be surf 'n' turf?) Briefing Document by Tim Arnot.
