The Winter Lectures season is upon us and the first is next Thursday. Accordingly it is more than time the program was published. Please find below the provisional list as some are yet to be confirmed. However the first few are locked down. Updates will be published ASAP.
As ever the regular spot is Thursdays at 7.30 pm in the clubhouse, bar open from 7. So, see you next Thursday!

23rd Jan David Tew Tephigrams: What they can tell us
David will be giving us a thorough and detailed look at Tephigrams, how they are generated, what the lines mean, their basic interpretation and what they can be used to predict about the flying day ahead. Bring a notepad, pencil and some Ibuprofen, as this is packed full and fast moving.
6th Feb Katie Isaacs 121.5 MHz – “Pan-Pan!” – What happens next?
NATS’ Katie Isaacs will be giving us a briefing on the ears and systems behind the Distress and Diversion cell at Swanwick military. Importantly she will try to take the mystique out of practising on the service, for the day you really need it….
20th Feb TBD
5th Mar Sharing the airspace around RAF Lakenheath
USAF operational staff from Lakenheath Approach will describe what they get up to and what we need to be aware of. Previous visits have shown that this can be a mutual opportunity. Essential viewing if you fly close to the places they do. And that’s most of us, by the way.
19th Mar TBD
2nd Apr Now We Are Solo (provisional date)
A panel of middle experienced CGC pilots will take us on their journeys from bronze via silver and through the uncharted and challenging waters to finding themselves as established and more importantly self-assured pilots, cross country or otherwise. Secretly, there will be plenty of you presently on that same journey.
