LAA and BRA Record Fly In attempt. Old Warden (Shuttleworth) Friday June 9th 2017

LAA and BRA Record Fly In attempt. Old Warden (Shuttleworth) Friday June 9th 2017
Last year the BRA and the LAA jointly hosted the Gyro Syposium at Old Warden. It was a great success in terms of updating attendees on Training, Safety, the BRA's and LAA's roles and goals etc. Over 30 Gyro's were booked to fly in. It promised to be one of the biggest gatherings of Gyro's in the UK ever.

Sadly the British weather presented us a low cloud base and an uncertain forecast, the result was a mere 9 Gyro's were able to make it.

On the back of that event, we have booked a FISO for the day and arranged a meal deal for BRA and LAA members who produce their membership cards at the checkout. Entry to the collection will also be free to members.

Please come along and see what promises to be a great spectacle of rotorcraft and if you own or fly a Gyro, please come and help create this record.

Aerodromo Lagos is holding its 50th Anniversary fly in on 16th-17th May 2015

Aerodromo Lagos is holding its 50th Anniversary fly in on 16th-17th May 2015

Aerodromo Lagos is holding its 50th Anniversary fly in on 16th-17th May 2015. Lagos is situated on the South West tip of Europe right on the Atlantic coast. The Algarve in Portugal is a delightful location to fly in with a pleasant climate and stunning landscape. Lagos airdrome has been the home of Algarve Airsports for over 30 years.

The UK school run by Gerry Breen has trained many UK microlight pilots and instructors during this time. More recently Gyrocopter Experience Algarve has set up a school where Kevin Robinson has been operating for the last 3 years. Both of them would be delighted to invite any UK microlight or gyroplane pilots to the event however it would be particularly pleasing to see ex students make the trip.

Anybody who is interested should contact aeroclube.lagos@gmail.com
Details of the event will be posted on the airfield facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/586694701452892/
