In addition to the proposed Fly-Out on Thursday, we will also have a Longest Day BBQ at the clubhouse on Saturday 22nd June.  Food will be served between 3 pm & 5 pm, giving everyone the chance to have a flight first – if the weather permits!  Looking forward to seeing you then!

July

Aviation Without Borders "Smiling Wings" Day
Saturday 6th July
(weather window 7th July)

Share the feeling of freedom, fun, and sheer joy of flying by joining us for the Aviation Without Borders (AWB) “Smiling Wings” day on 6th July (7th July as a back up).  

The Scottish Aero Club is delighted to join the AWB initiative whereby deserving children from all backgrounds are invited to their local airport for the day and are offered the opportunity to discover the world of flying. They learn how aircraft work and fly, enjoy a tour of the airport and are taken on a short flight. 

This cannot happen without the generosity of Scottish Aero Club members, consequently, we are looking for pilot members with 2 or 4 seater aircraft to offer a little time to help with this event.  All you need to do is take short 20-to-30-minute local flights with a young person (or young persons and carer for those with a 4-seater aircraft).

AWB will share the flight costs 50:50 as allowed under the CAA guidelines as a thank you for your support.  

Weather permitting, the schedule is Saturday 6th July: 10:00 – 13:00 then 14:00 – 16:00 . Sunday 7th July is the reserve day in case of bad weather, same timings.

For more details or to register your interest contact Syd Smith at secretary@scottishaeroclub.org.uk or telephone 07789 691469.

August

SAC Annual Fly-In
10th & 11th August 2024

The dates chosen for the 2024  SAC Annual Fly-In are 10th and 11th August.  The event is still in the planning stages but please Save the Date and more information will be released as soon as possible.

The UK flying calendar is a busy one over the summer, so picking a suitable weekend was not an easy task. We are hopeful, however, that as many of our members, family and friends will be able to make it.  Watch this space and our e-newsletters for further information.
