Planned Excursions & Activities

Next Star Event

Return to Jersey

For September, we are visiting Jersy, a lovely island we haven't visited for 10 years as a Club event. The route takes the shortest over-water crossing available without going up to Dover. Here is the Briefing.

Latest Star Event

Come Along to My House

August saw us flying south from Sherburn-in-Elmet to Chatteris, an airfield hiding away in the East Anglian fens, so hidden the CAA does not have a code for it.   Fortunately FSX and X-Plane have, though they are different! Part of the flight follows almost exactly along the prime meridian (0o longitude). Not far from Chatteris is Sherburn Airfield Manager John Lygo's home, and he invites us in. Here is the Briefing.

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.

Friday Group Flight (FriesenFlieger + cix) - A Friday evening meeting with our German Friends.

Pan American Highway - A trip from Alaska in the north to Argentina in the south.

US State Capitals Tour - A trip around USA visiting all the State capitals.
