Indoor Flying Dates for 2016 - Booked

The darker winter nights are fast approaching  with that in mind, I’ve booked six indoor sessions for the LMAC indoor flying between October 2016 to March 2017. The venue and price will all remain the same and the Sports Connexion have agreed to keep the £60 cost for the three and half hours the same. The provisional dates for your diaries are as follows:

• Sunday 9th October 2016 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 6th November 2016 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 15th January 2017 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 29th January 2017 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 26th February 2017 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 12th March 2017 – 18:30-22:00

Unfortunately December is rammed for bookings, so I’ve booked two sessions in January 2017 to compensate. All dates are within the large blue sports hall. I’m not going to bother with the Cricket Hall. If for whatever reason any of the sessions get cancelled (it’s always a risk and an agreement which I have in place with them), then we’ll have to cancel that given month. Unless I can get sufficient commitment that you want to fly in the Cricket hall. Experience has shown that Cricket Hall meetings are far less subscribed than those for the large sports hall; For obvious reasons!
Anyway, you have time to get preparing your indoor fleet. I’ll add the datesto Facebook, the LMAC calendar and send out via email. Keep any eye out for these and always check the various sources of info beforehand.
Enjoy the rest of the summer flying!

A Good Friday....

Most LMAC members would have studied the Easter weather forecast and concluded that Good Friday was going to offer the best opportunity to fly over the long holiday weekend. Thus far it's proved to be correct and we had 25+ members sign in to fly on Friday 25th March 2016.  Blue skies and not a transmitter mit in sight brought a whole host of new models which were getting their maiden who had not flown at LMAC for some time.

The following set of Flickr pictures shows some of the fine models on display:

LMAC - 25th March 2016 - Good Friday

It was a Good Friday for most mixed in with a couple of unfortunate casualties to one or two models. One of those was John Paynes competition model which suffered a totally accident mid-air with Thomas Newitt's model as he was practising for his BMFA Fixed Wing A certificate.  Fortunately, Thomas's plane came off in better shape and he later went on to successfully pass the BMFA Fixed Wing A certificate. Well done Thomas!

Also doing very well was younger step brother Louis Pilon who very successfully buddied up with Father Ian for his first taste of RC flying outside of the simulator.  He took to it like a duck from water and was landing the plane after three flights! Well done to Louis too and it won't be long before he's taking his Fixed wing certificate at this rate!

As always the patch is looking in excellent condition despite the rain, so get out and enjoy some flying!
