“It’s that time of year again! Come and join fellow flyers and their significant others as the Scottish Aero Club’s glittering equivalent of the Oscars takes place, at the Royal George Hotel, Perth. There will be great food and prizes galore with this black tie event getting underway at 7.00 for 7.30. Don’t forget that we’re also seeking self-nominations for a number of awards including: most memorable flight; most airfields visited; furthest distance travelled; and best aviation related photograph!”
The SAC are delighted to be joined by Paul Aspin – an instantly recognisable voice from Scottish Information – to tell us about the service they provide and why we may want to use it more. A great opportunity to learn more about something many of us take for granted or to be re-assured that these guys only want to help and encourage others to give them a call! Drinks and nibbles to follow as always.
Heartstart Discovery courses :
Heartstart Discovery is running a two-hour training sessions in emergency life support.
Being able to perform emergency life support, a set of actions needed to keep someone alive until professional help arrives, gives a casualty the best possible chance of survival.
Courses are free-of-charge and no medical knowledge is required in order to undertake one. It only takes two hours to learn the skills which may save a life and it is very likely that the person you help may be a family member or someone close to you.
The sessions cover:
• caring for an unconscious person who is breathing
• caring for an unconscious person who is not breathing and performing CPR
• how to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and how to deal with it
• helping someone who is choking
• helping someone who is bleeding badly
• Content can be tailored to match our requirements.
• Contact Elaine if interested as numbers will be limited. email@example.com

The Scottish Aero Club (SAC)
is Scotland’s original and largest flying club. We are the only such organization to attract members from all parts of Scotland – as well as from other parts of the UK and overseas. We have three key objectives:
- To encourage and support Sport and Recreational aviation.
- To minimize the costs of Sport and Recreational aviation.
- To attract and retain members.
We were established in 1927 as the Scottish Flying Club and began life near the current site of Glasgow’s International Airport. In 1956 we merged with the Strathtay Flying Club, relocated to Perth Airport and became the Scottish Aero Club. We are proud to be the only entity in continuous operation at Perth Airport ever since.
Today’s SAC is a vibrant organisation with over 350 active members. We have four distinct membership categories. This means we have the right membership type – and budget – for all aviation enthusiasts: Pilots, Students, Associates and Juniors. We operate the largest general aviation hangar in Scotland for the benefit of our members and visiting pilots. We offer reasonable rates and provide year-round hangarage for more than 90 aircraft of all types and sizes.
Perth Airport is the premier general aviation aerodrome in Scotland. Located centrally between Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow, it boasts three runways: two tarmac and one grass. This means there are very few times when wind direction prevents flying. And Perth is the only Scottish airport to conduct all types of flight training: Aeroplane, Microlight and Gyrocopter. Alba Airsports are the Training Provider for the Scottish Aero Club here at Perth, with highly competitive rate packages available for gaining your NPPL, PPL(G) and private training programs.
The SAC is also home to the Strathtay Strut of the LAA (Light Aircraft Association), and we serve as the Scottish Office of UK AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association).
During the summer we host numerous fly-ins and fly-outs (both UK and abroad) – plus a number of social, charity and community events. During autumn and winter evenings we provide a wide range of aviation-related lectures and events.
Our members extend a warm welcome to prospective and new members as well as to the public and visiting pilots and their families and friends. There is an inexpensive hotel and an economically priced cafe just steps from our spacious and well-appointed clubhouse facilities – where coffee and snacks are also available.
