2020 - At your service!

  • Posted on: 19 February 2020

There is unprecedented activity behind the scenes within the Squadron but unfortunately most of it is still yet to be confirmed so we can't share it just yet.

We have a couple of aircraft in the CAA licencing pipeline which we hope will be with us in the next few months and ready for the new season, this will increase the number of aircraft available to us, loud and long applause to our engineers who have done a fantastic job.

Show confirmations are slowly beginning to roll in as organisers finalise budgets, themes and venues.

Ringing in 2020

We'd like to apologise for being somewhat lax in updating the website in recent months, but we've certainly been busy in other areas.

The end of last season was impacted upon heavily by the poor weather with a number of events cancelled due to the late summer storms causing it to peter out in a particularly undramatic manner.

In November we enjoyed a highly succesful fundraising black tie dinner in London with Tim Peak and David Hempleman-Adams as guest speakers and of course in early December we had our Christmas Party.

July 19

An incredibly busy and very succesful June has created a tangible feeling of momentum within the Squadron and we're buoyed by it.

July looks to be slightly less frenetic, but starts with a trio of our aircraft attending the Capel show which is just to the west of Gatwick airport. In addition we have been confirmed as attending the Southport show in the North West, this gives us a fantastic opportunity to venture further North and display to new crowds. We are also in discussion with a number of other shows which may yet be added to our display calendar.

June - at the Gallop

Blimey - It's mid June already!

This year is tearing along at a blistering pace, we've already fulfilled commitments at Abingdon, the Lechlade duck race, helped Goodwood aerodrome open it's new doors. supported the Shuttleworth Festival and were delighted to embrace the D-Day 75 celebrations at Lee on Solent.

Full Speed Ahead....

Productive would best describe recent weeks for the Squadron, our events programme is filling very quickly and more invitations are arriving weekly.

To some of you a "DA" will be a haircut from the 1950's but for the six happy, smiling Gazelle pilots in the photograph it's a Display Authorisation, without which our pilots are unable to display at public events.
