    Duxford

    Saturday 25th March

    83nm

    1st fly-out of the year can be more weather-dependent than the rest, but let’s hope we can make it this year. We are going to try again to get to Duxford the home of the Imperial War Museum. Even if you have not visited before there are more than enough attractions to fill your time.

    Beginners Flyout

    Sat 22nd Sun 23rd April

    148nm

     

    (Recommended for Students or low -hours PPLs)

    The beginner’s fly-out is proving most popular and this year we will use our 4-seat PA28, which will allow students to be carried on all three legs out and back thereby getting the most from each other’s experiences

    We will stop at EARLS COLNE and CRANFIELD before overnighting in Wellesbourne or Oxford, then WYCOMBE and SHOREHAM on the way back. The usual fleet of club and group planes will accompany the fly-out. Very cost effective flying

    Newquay

     Sat 27th to Mon 29th May

    228nm

     

    Cornwall's finest beaches and a taste of the Atlantic await us on August Bank Holiday weekend.

    Great flying, fantastic scenery not a Euro in sight!

    Given half decent weather this will be a memorable fly-out. Sea food or Cornish pasties? That is the only question.

    Lille

    24th and 25th June

    85nm

     

    One of the finest cities wthin easy reach from Lydd. Lille has featured on previous flyouts and with good reason. The capital of the French region of Nord-Pas de Calais has great cultural and commercial past and this is reflected in its architecture and ambience. From narrow streets to wide open squares, it will not disappoint. It will also give us all chance to mingle with the airliners at a GA friendly regional airport.

     

    Lille

    Guernsey

    22nd - 23rd July

    165nm

     

    The second largest of the Channel Islands it is also, arguably, the prettiest. Compact, friendly, a blend of Anglo Saxon culture and Huguenot France. Various options on how to get there include the direct sea route, the Isle of Wight route or the Northern France scenic alternative.

    Trier

    Sat 26th to Mon 28th August

    233Nm

     

    Trier is the former western capital of the Roman Empire and it also lays claim the being the oldest city in Germany. The flight itself is not difficult and will take you over the Ardennes, through Luxembourg before descending over the Mosel River into Trier Fohren airfield. Great architecture, great wine and, of course, the ubiquitous Weiner Schnitzel!

    Midden Zeeland

    Sat 9th to Sun 10th September

    110nm

    Another Club favourite, this manicured-lawn grass runway sits at the centre of Zeeland and offers many options, including camping under the wing, hangar bunks and hotels in cosmopolitan Middelburg or the ancient harbour at Veere. The airfield itself has a great garden restaurant where you can sip a beer and watch the planes come and go.
