Re: Vale of York Strut Zoom presentation. 18/02/21

Matt will be delayed due to being unable to get out of bed on a morning.
His excuse is that he has a T38 authorisation flight and California is behind real time.

The meeting starts at 21:00 and Matt will join us when he gets out of his pyjamas.

Don't give specific dates, especially in these nightmarish times. This wil...

Re: Covid lockdown

Thanks Steve, I do know you are pushing for Common Sense from the DfT, which is sadly lacking. It appears paper qualifications are more important, but nudges from members should be encouraged. More to other other unmentioned associations than our own I admit.

The DfT are concerned that if people who can't enjoy their leisure and sport activities but see light aircraft flying as ...
