March update

  • Posted on: 2 March 2018

We've been busy!

We've finished our mandatory ground training for 2018 and are now starting to turn our attention towards adding to our list of display qualified pilots and improving our display routine with an added emphasis on pleasing the photographers amongst you.

We've currently got 3 aircraft fully serviceable with the prospect of a 4th on the horizon. Bourne Park is a cold place at the best of times, however the recent extreme conditions has tested even the hardiest of souls and we applaud loudly the endeavours of our fantastic engineers.

This month will see the Easter Bunny delivering eggs (and a cheque) to Naomi House and we move up a gear in our pilot training with a full day of intensive flying activities planned for the end of the month. At the same time the diary is getting added to as the Air show organisers confirm their requirements for 2018.

We're working on supporting an event for Julia's House towards the end of the month and are providing BLESMA, the limbless veterans charity with an air experience day on 31st March. In addition to these we've also been asked to deliver a presentation in the coming months on the Squadron's activities to support the Museum of Army Flying.

After that, it will be downhill into the air display season.

Our diary is filling up fast as the confirmations come in, so please be sure to visit our events page for the latest information.

The show goes on, so please follow us on Facebook or Twitter
