Club Talk - Radar to ADSB

radarEvening Lecture: From Radar to Revolutionary, The journey from ‘basic’ radar to today’s ‘hi-tech’ aircraft awareness systems (Including low Power ADSB, FLARM and PilotAware)

 Saturday 22 April at 7.00 for 7.30, SAC Club Rooms

Join us at the end of the flying day for a session with Peter Robertson  (Microlight Pilot and Member of the PilotAware Development Team) as he presents a talk designed to increase understanding by Pilots of how present-day Aviation Radar Systems and Transponders work. Peter will also cover how this ‘basic’ technology can be improved to provide safer and more effective traffic awareness to pilots and to indicate (and discuss) potential future developments.
As a member of the Pilot Aware development team, Peter will also have a very limited number of units available for demonstration and sale.

"Mountain Flying, Circuit Discipline and Safety" Thursday 16th February : 1900 for 1930 in the club rooms.


Another event not to be missed, as our own Dai Heather-Hayes covers a wide rage of safe flying issues in his own unique way! The topic may appear dry but we're sure that it will include many amusing stories and anecdotes that will leave the audience rolling in the isles as always. You will want to be there!


As always, drinks and nibbles will follow...

Be sure not to miss this evening lecture, as we're joined by Tim Rayner, an old friend of the SAC, to tell us the remarkable story of Alcock and Brown's 1919 crossing of the Atlantic in a modified Vickers Vimy bomber.

A real Boys Own adventure that will be followed by the normal drinks, nibbles and opportunity to chat to friends old and new!
