IOW Fly-Out to Sandown



So… we picked a beautiful day for our School fly-out to Sandown! Or Dan-down as it has been colloquially renamed (by Dan!) Dan, the new lessee of the airfield has grand plans for making Sandown the first airfield resort and ‘The best airfield in the World’ (his words!)….. he’s already installed showers and hot-tubs ready for his Summer Glamping weekends. May well be worth another visit soon…!

For some of our members it was the first long-distance trip post PPL, and for others, a chance to brush up on navigation and an excuse for lunch!

Richard gained his PPL earlier in the year and flew G-AVEH on the outbound leg as part of his differences training, under Steve’s instruction. David flew G-ECGC out and Simon flew her back; both relatively new PPLs. Murray, Louisa and Jerry came along too in their own planes. We all enjoyed a (long) walk in the sunshine and lunch on the beach. And, of course, some great flying! A grand day out!

January Fly-Out

The January fly-out was a wintry visit to Wales. Our Intrepid Trio, Jeff Helm, Roger Tunnard (taking the photos) and Jeff Moreland set off in G-MICK, the school C-172, and enjoyed 4 hours of flying to Caernarfon and back, taking in a landscape of winter wonderland.

The planned stop at Halfpenny Green never materialised due to the fact that it was reported that the 3 pilots were….. ‘taken ill’. However, all was well, as rather than being ‘taken ill’, they had actually landed at ‘Tatenhill’!

A fantastic day’s flying was had by all, sharing the flying and the costs. They each enjoyed 4 hours’ flying in our comfortable C-172 for less than £32 per hour per person! (Whilst enjoying good health throughout 😉 )

A New Era at Fenland Flying School

We are now 6 months on from our re-organisation and much has happened. Our new membership scheme is proving to be very popular enabling members to fly at virtually cost price and to feel part of the flying community. With Spring round the corner and the longer daylight hours, there’s a welcome renewed interest in learning to fly from a steady stream of newcomers, but plenty of room for more! So give us a call and get booked in!
