Gloster Meteor

Again another month of weather interfering with the flying, we’re all looking forward to some long awaited sunshine in May.

For those who didn’t hear, on Monday 22nd April a Gloster Meteor was lifted from Imjin Barracks by Chinook to its new home at Gloucestershire Airport at the Jet Age Museum. The Gloster Meteor T7 – Britain’s first operational jet plane, developed in 1940 – was lifted out of Imjin Barracks, Innsworth, by an RAF Chinook. 

We like to welcome a few new students this month. With Andrew Clarke successfully converting onto the Cessna, also Kirk Daly converting onto the Cessna 172. We’d also like to congratulate Vincent Tesson on passing his air law.

We’ve got quite a few students wanting to fly intensively over the summer, so if you do wish to fly more over the summer months and book any extra lessons in please make sure you do so in advance so we can accommodate you.
