End of Summer Event
« on: September 05, 2009, 05:45:23 pm »
Hi All,

I am planning an end of Summer event, that will probably take place near the end of October.

The event will probably consist of all SAV pilots flying to a designated Summer destination, although it could instead consist of us all flying out of Bristol to our own individual Summer destinations.

Watch this space for full details, but I'd like your thoughts on the matter please...

Regards,

Sounds like a plan Dan.
I think it'd be better if we all flew to the same destination.

Totally in favour, Dan, though I agree with Dave that it would probably be more sociable to fly to the same destination.

Thats what we shall do then! I'll think of a Summer-sun destination with a challenging approach...

Hi All,

I haven't forgotten about this, I've been wrestling with my PC! It keeps bluescreening whilst running FS so I need to try and sort it.

I will be planning this event though, watch this space!

I'm thinking of Corfu LGKR, any thoughts guys? If Runway 35 is in use, the approach is tricky so that could be fun. I think 35 is the tricky one anyway!

Corfu is fine by me as long as we can find scenery and charts. I guess a butcher's hook at Hellenic VACC should turn some up. Wasn't Wychitta a DJ there once upon a time? I should like to visit the shrine and set fire to it.

There is scenery available, & I can easily get charts.

I just need to try and sort out my PC, I'm thinking a stick of my RAM might be dead. I'll need to experiment by removing each stick and flying...

Hi Dan.


What aircraft would you allow on the route to Corfu? I'm going to have to sort out my IFR Flying (perhaps with help from Trevor :P) before the date so I can make the journey.

It's a SAV event Callum, do you wish to join SAV? If so, I'll sort you out a membership. The fleet list can be viewed via www.severnair.co.uk. I would suggest A320, A321, B752, B763 as suitable aircraft for the route.
