Super Cub Group

This is from Trystan Holtbrook:
‘As Mark Farquhar is leaving the group, we have space for a pilot.
We’d like an experienced flyer with a sense of mechanical sympathy who would be using the aircraft occasionally – rather than a hour builder. Taildragger experience good but not essential as we have a great instructor on hand.’

As this is a private matter unconnected with the SAC, any member interested should email Trystan on holtbrook@gmail.com

1/4 Share - GT450 Flexwing

1/4 Share GT450 based at East Fortune, East Lothian. G-CERP Very well equipped and maintained, good availability, annual permit just complete. Well run, friendly group. Would suit the shorter flexwing pilot.

NOTAMS

 

Notams - from Wallace Shackleton

No one wants to be caught out by flying somewhere where one shouldn’t be, that’s why we check the NOTAMs before we fly….we do, don’t we?

While doing some studying for the ROCC exam, I came across an interesting snippet, which to be fair my instructor did tell me but it is nice to find it out for myself.
When you log onto the NATS web site, that log in is registered, so in the event of the poo hitting the propeller, so when grown-ups who ask the serious questions ask “Did you check the NOTAMs?”
You say “yes” but they say “no you didn’t log onto the official site that day.”

To quote from the NATS NOTAM, General page…

“Why do I have to register?

…in the unlikely event of an incident, registration helps to prove to investigators that flight planning activity has taken place….”

Although graphically easier to understand third party web sites are not the official ones and to be honest, would you really trust your life/license to a third party website?

The trouble is with the NATS web site is you get too much irrelevant information, so here’s a good tip for sorting out the wheat from the chaff. You can tailor the aerodromes to suit yourself.

Log onto the NATS web site http://www.nats-uk.ead-it.com

Select NOTAM from the top navigation bar, then either Existing Users or Login now

After logging in.

Look on the left hand margin for “Point Brief (UK FIR/UIR Only)”

Select this and enter EGPT in the origin box and set the radius box (for example) to 50 miles

Make sure that IFR/VFR is checked in the Flight Rules box

then enter EGPT EGPN EGPJ and EGQL (Perth, Dundee, Fife and Leuchars) into the Aerodromes box and then select submit

Now Back to the left hand margin and select Briefing Handbook (Saved Briefings) and then select the most recent briefing, so starting out you will only have one. It should have a P for Point Briefing in the type box then select Use and then Submit and all the NOTAMs within the radius selected will be shown, effectively sorting out the wheat from the chaff.
