Fly-Out - Longside, Peterhead
Sunday 5th October 2014
10.00am for 11.00am Departure
We're going to have yet another crack at our fly-out to Buchan Aero Club up at Longside Airfield (a small tarmac airstrip on an old air base west of Peterhead). The folk at Buchan Aero Club are very friendly and always pleased to welcome visitors so this should be a fun day out to a part of the country to which you may not have flown very often.
Fly-outs are a great opportunity to meet new club members and even get to fly in a type of aircraft different to what you normally fly and the trip up will involve by-passing the Aberdeen Zone in an interesting manner, if previous flights up there are anything to go by.
The plan is to meet at Fife at 10.00am, sort ourselves out in terms of who's flying in what aircraft and then get in the air as soon as possible.
if you've never been much further than Largo Bay, this will be a great opportunity to see what flying cross country is about. Whether you're a PPL or student, we can usually sort out seating arrangements to accommodate those wishing to come along!
