Flight Testing Lecture

All LAA and BMAA members welcome to an evening Flight Testing Lecture

As a mid-week highlight of the joint CAA/LAA flight testing course, Roger Bailey, Cranfield University test pilot and Chief Pilot of the Suttleworth Collection, is to give a presentation at Turweston explaining some of the lessons he has learnt over many years flight testing a huge variety of aeroplanes from Bleriot to Boeing.

The talk will be given on the evening of Wednesday 8th June between 1815 and 1945 local time in the Conference room above the LAA offices at Turweston Aerodrome. This talk is open to any LAA or BMAA member, free of charge, and we are sure it will be amusing as well as informative for any pilot interested in how the aircraft we fly are tested.

Members are welcome to fly in to the event, with the timing of the lecture having been set to accomodate last departures before the airfield closes at 2000. Visiting pilots are, however, asked to take care to observe the airfield's pblished noise abatement procedures if arriving non-radio. The tower will remain operational until 2000 and fuel is available if necessary.

So that we have an idea of numbers, could members wishing to attend email Penny Sharpe in advance (penny.sharpe@laa.uk.com) or phone 01280 846 786.
