before the event!
Please give me a call or send me an email
so I can keep track of who's intending to fly in.
I also need to know who's intending to camp at Shipdham, we've had to restrict camping to visiting aircraft only and we need to know numbers... especially if you want breakfast!
You can contact me on any of:
Tony Wilkinson Tel: 01482 896732 Mob: 07774 173378 email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
By radio 4 miles out 132.25 is okay,
or if preferred phone club house on the day: 01362 820709
The ONLY active runway will be 20/02
The new grass strip alongsite the disused airstrip will be obviously inactive, since there will be a 9mx24m marquee erected on it!
See: Shipdham website for airfield info.
We have to ask that anyone flying-in MUST BRING WITH THEM:
Proof of current Insurance Valid PPL Valid Medical declaration/certificate Valid Permit To FlyI realise it's a pain to carry all this clobber, but since this is a public event I'm afraid you have to have the paperwork. Sorry, Tony Wilk.
All pilots must book in and out in the designated area in the club house, this is a legal requirement.
Furthermore, pilots must be briefed before flying when at the event. Contact Woody DeSaar at the main marquee
Shipdham radio on 132.250
Available most times from Shipdham Aero Club at £1.30 per litre
Pilots are requested to get fuel on arrival rather than wait until departure
Note: no fuel cans allowed in the public show area for safety reasons.
There are no landing fees for display aircraft. We request a voluntary donation of £3.00 from visiting pilots to help with runway maintenance. When booking in and out in the club house there are envelopes for pilots to leave a landing fee, this can be taken to the Bar and left there.
Shipdham hanger is completely full, outside parking is available. Some space may be available overnight under the B.R.A. marquee, but this cannot be guaranteed due to height restrictions.
Aircraft shown in the public display area are displayed at the owner’s risk.
Visitors are allowed to walk around these aircraft, so, for safety reasons (and to comply with our Risk Assessment), they must have:
* Rotors tied, hazard tape on end of rotor * Battery disconnected, terminals taped * Keys secured – not in aircraft * Plugs removed (to prevent inadvertent starting) * Engine/exhaust cool to touch * No fuel spillsWe will have marshalls on duty to assist moving aircraft, and we'll have plenty of tape!
