Air Activity Update

Air Venture January 2017

Vent 1

The first Air Venture Flying Camp for 2017 took place from Sunday 22nd to Saturday 28th January with 8 budding pilots (6 boys and 2 girls) and 9 instructors participated. Unfortunately due to weather conditions not all allocated hours could be flown but in addition to theory studies students were kept occupied with a number of activities. Owing to their dedication and effort made to study, all students passed their theory test for their first solo and can use the balance of their remaining hours at their leisure to achieve that exhilarating and unforgettable feeling of achievement. A very special thanks to a dedicated group of volunteer flight instructors and Air Activity Centre members who tirelessly made it all happen.

The camp is growing in popularity with places being booked well in advance. Keep an eye out here for future dates.
