2020 Refresher Courses

Dear All,

Below are the dates for the 2020 round of Annual Refresher Courses.

The courses will have one instructor for every two students with a maximum of four course members and two instructors each day. The course content will be confirmed nearer the time but will include the mandatory Stalls and Spins / Winch Launch Failures plus other fun flying, interspersed with talks and discussions on interesting flying topics – Come ready with some topics of your own!

Annual Refreshers (or the more formal Annual Check)  are mandatory for Solo Pilots.

Please contact Joanne, in the office to book your Annual Refresher course.

Alternately you can arrange an Annual Check via the Two Seater booking system (Both midweek and on weekend days when Refresher Courses are not active), however remember that the Perkoz or Puchacz will be required for the Stalling / Spinning elements of the check.

Also bear in mind that the Refresher Courses will allow time for briefings & discussions on topics that the flying committee believe are key to maintaining and improving flight safety, whilst these may not necessarily be covered when instructors are performing their ‘normal’ weekend duties. Of course, you could always attend the Refresher briefings if the weather is inclement or the Refresher Course fully booked and then carry out the required flying on another day.

As a reminder, Basic Instructors and those members exercising a Passenger Rating should fly their Annual Checks / Refresher with a Fully Rated Instructor.

Dates of the Refresher courses where at least one full cat is available are:
