Next Star Event

The Christmas Caper
December 1st-31st 2018

Our Traditional month-long December "Caper" this year is to cross Canada from East to West, following the Trans-Canadian Railway. This is a tour which starts off in Nova Scotia, heads west through the beautiful eastern provinces of Quebec and Ottawa, traverses wild and sometimes featureless country through Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and ends with some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, traversing the Rocky Mountains to end the tour in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Farm Strips

The original 93 UK Farms Strips developed by Gerry Winskill, and the 10 developed by Pete Chapman, have been re-organised. The Farm Strips page gives the complete itinerary in groups, starting from Gloucestershire, and finishing eventually at Biggin Hill. A more formal start was made in January 2015. Usually two groups were assigned each month. Monthly assignments were shown on the Locations page, and details were discussed in the forum. Whilst that cycle has been completed, it is still possible to make your way round the planned route.

Informal Events

Club activities are discussed in the forum, which is open to club members only. These include a number of informal club events each of which is organised by an individual member or a small group of members. Some are short lived, but others turn into long running group activities. The more structured or recently active informal events are listed here with links to relevant forum topics for club members.

Beginners Night - A regular Monday evening surgery. Run by Mel Kirk to help beginners.

Don Johnson and Friends - Regular Tuesday evening group flights around Gloucestershire airfield.

Guided Tour - A trip around Europe, or foreign fields with flights on Wednesday evenings.
