LMAC Gala Day - Cancelled - Sunday 12th August 2018



Due to the deteriorating weather over the weekend it has been decided to cancel the Gala Day for Sunday. It was felt that the work to get the site ready and the cost of getting food prepared was not worth the gamble of a poor weather forecast. As you may have seen on FaceBook, we are looking to reset the date in September and combine it with a Warbirds day. I will send out another official notice when a decision has been made.

THE FLYING FIELD WILL BE CLOSED ON SUNDAY 20TH MAY

Further to the email from John Payne on Monday 14th May 2018. The Flying Field will be closed on Sunday 20th May 2018 to allow the field leveling work to be conducted safely. The soil and sand will be dropped off later this week in preparation for a first go at the leveling the field on Sunday.   If you are available on Sunday 20th May , please go to Gumley to pitch in with the work so that it can be completed and the field reopened as soon as possible.  It's an opportunity for those who have voiced their opinions on the subject to assist!   Obviously if plans change, we will let you know, so keep an eye out here on the Website, Facebook LMAC Group Page and the LMAC Calendar.

*** CANCELLED *** Indoor Flying - Sunday 10th December 2017 *** CANCELLED ***

Good morning all,

I’ve taken the decision to cancel the indoor flying session for this evening 10th December 2017;  I know a lot of you travel a fair distance and in the interest of safety first, I wanted to let you know as soon as possible.   The forecast looks like the snow is going to continue to fall until this evening and is then set to freeze overnight, therefore it’s not worth the risk of travelling.

I’ll look to see if we can squeeze another meeting into January or February 2018 and keep you posted.  This same message, will be posted on Facebook, email and the LMAC website, but please share with anyone who you might have shared with outside of these circles.

Sorry for any disappointment caused. There’s always another day!

If I don’t see you before Christmas, then I wish you all the very best.

Lighting up the LMAC sky

Tom Barwick and Rob Mac shared the below pictures of a recent evening flying session demonstrating the effect of light trails - skimming.  Tom and Rob worked together to get these pictures. The first is Rob's attempt at spelling LMAC in light and the other is a general flying flight path.  Very effective guys!
