ClassicJets #62

Postby Dave Wilshere on Tue Mar 10, 2015 8:24 am

The ClassicJets event is a must visit Jet meeting, privately organised and funded by Dick, the event is welcoming to spectators and new pilots. Flying tends to be a back burner for some, as it can get busy with guys packing all their flights into one day, but its a superb social event and there will be lots of good flying and nice models to see. Plus breakfast and lunch, all day coffee/tea and soft drinks!

Contact Dick on the email addy below, any problem email or phone me in the office.

Classic Jets #62
Friday 3rd April, 2015
Hi all,

CJ #62 will take place at Abingdon airfield on 3rd April, 2015 and the following applies...

NOTE:

As usual, the event will be fly for fun for jet models only (no pulse jets, prop jobs or helicopters). Food will be provided - bacon sandwich in the morning, 1/4 pounder burger and a doggy bag with piece of fruit, crisps, chocolate bar & rock bunny for lunch, and tea, coffee, squash and sweeties will be on tap and available for free all day. There will be a portaloo on site. Anybody with special dietary requirements (eg., coeliac, veggie, vegan, diabetic, religious, etc) should let me know and I'll do my best to provide food of their choice.

Pilots must be current BMFA members and B certificate (or SAA equivalent) holders (including both pilots if a buddy-box system is in use)...no BMFA = no flying. Any foreign pilots wishing to fly should contact me ASAP and I will sort out their insurance.

Models weighing over 20Kg and subject to the LMA Large Model Scheme certification are to be made known to Dick Spreadbury...certificates will be required as proof of scheme compliance before the model(s) fly...IT IS THE PILOT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE THE EVENT ORGANISER AWARE OF ANY OVER 20KG MODELS. All models will be scrutinised and flying will take place from 1000 through until 1730. There are normally LMA Scheme Flying Witnesses available if required on the day.

The entry form follows and I need to receive your response by no later than COP Monday 30th March, 2015. Entries after this date will incur a £5 levy that will be donated to Helen and Douglas House charity.

Entry numbers, Pilot's Rules and map will be emailed back by return as entries are received. Entry fees are: Pilots £25, Pit Crew/Helpers £18 (or after 30th March, £30 and £23)

As usual, I am funding a gate guard to check everybody entering the event, so it'll be a case of no gate pass number on the day, no entry - the military are insistent upon this at this event.

NOTE: There will be no dedicated Tx control at the event for 35 mHz users.. However, so that we can minimise the risk of a 35 mHz frequency clash, there is an extra bit on the entry form which pilots intending using 35 mHz are to state the frequency number(s) they will be using

Cheers,

Dick Spreadbury
