Bronze lectures - second in a series

Last Saturday 3 brave souls slithered their way up the M40 to attend Bob Smith's renowned talk on Theory of Flight. Today there was a roomful of aspiring pre-Bronze pilots to listen to Steve Williams on Navigation and NOTAMs, a very worthwhile topic. Following on from this, Jane dropped in to promote the club's expeditions to Shobdon (20-28 March - list now open in the office) and Aboyne (3 weeks starting 3 October). And finally, Tim Scott arrived to launch the new Booker mentoring scheme aimed at improving cross country performance and soaring ability for every single member - more information in due course.

Dates for your diary - Saturdays at 10.00 - Bronze lectures:
23 January - Meteorology - Alun Jenkins
30 January - Airmanship, Radio and Human Factors - Jane Moore, followed by an opportunity to take the Bronze exam
