Folks, another flying season dawns. As you all know (I hope) the club has a new CFI. A very experienced pilot who brings knowledge, massive experience and professionalism to the club. The club is well placed in terms of aircraft and for the first time has a glass fibre single seater in the ASW 15. The club house is probably in better shape than it has been for years and you all have a great chance to build on this.

I have thought a great deal about what to write in this post, I have time on my hands up in Newark on the evenings but the simple single fact I conclude is that everyone in the club really has to get more stuck in and help Simon.

Have a great season everyone.

    I spent a little while helping Simon last Saturday, on a mattress next to the winch… dismantling and cleaning a four choke Edelbrock carburettor! The elusive misfire gremlin is being hunted down still.
    Murphys law decreed that the ‘spare’ winch arrived a bit late, due to the recovery driver taking a week off in Majorca.
    The yellow monster came down from Staffordshire GC on Saturday 21st, supposedly in full running order, Obviously a bit of familiarisation and checking needed! Small, or big, issue, it is 2ft higher than the winch hut…. Tost winch on a 1954 Dennis dustcart chassis makes for an impressive lump!
    I have a little more time available due to changes in family commitment. So I will be getting my hands dirty on a regular basis!

    Update, four K13 launches have happened, and the new low emission engine oil is on its way….
    Heroic volunteers needed to ‘calibrate’ the driver for single seaters.
    It’s very different , the view from the cab includes the launch point!!
