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.

Already confirmed and new for us this year is the Little Gransden Airshow, Cambs, a highly succesful and well established charity event on behalf of "Children in Need." Specific details are still to be confirmed, but almost certain to be a 2 ship display.

We'll almost certainly be providing a static display at Wicksteed at War although confined to a static event it is a another fabulous opportunity for us to reach new audiences and share our love of the Gazelle with the good people of Northamptonshire.

We've had our first mandatory training session of the season and are really excited by the buzz of anticipation in the room when we all got back together after a winter of relative quiet.

The Army Air Corps celebrates it's 80th Anniversary in August with a private (families day) event at Middle Wallop and we are honoured to have been invited to display. Most of our crews are ex Army and being given the opportunity to combine a display with a reunion on this scale is an opportunity to be savoured.

We have great plans for this - and the ensuing party!
