Level 2 processes

The Club is operating again but under COVID Level 2 restrictions. All members need to follow the procedures which are published in the documents tab and are posted at the Aero Club.

Training

Following successful courses on “Radio” in July and “Navigation” in November last year, we now have completed a course on “Weather Theory” over 3 session this April. Due to Covid-19 the course was only virtual, but was well attended and received by a good number of members and friends.

Special General Meeting

This is to confirm that there will be a special general meeting on 14th Dec 2019, 11:30am at the club house for the following purpose:

— To vote on revised club rules
— To elect a club committee.

MAC members make sure you attend this meeting ! We need to get a sufficient number of financial members to make a quorum, and we need to appoint a full committee as required by our current club rules.
Without that the club will be defunct.
