Next Social Events

We frequently plan social events and flyouts for like minded people to come together and have a good time.

We have a regular social gathering every three months. This allows us all to relax and unwind with clients and friends. Everyone is welcome. These relaxed affairs are normally on the first Friday of the month every quarter, starting with March.

Social Evening - 3rd March 2017

Our next quarterly social will be the first of 2017. This will give us all a chance to catch up and see how well those new years resolutions are holding! The date is Friday 3rd March from 7pm onwards (probably until they throw us out!... As usual!). The location is the lovely Bridge Inn at the end of Shoreham-by-Sea High Street. Hopefully we'll see you there, and remember, everyone is welcome.

Spa-Francorchamps Flyout - 5th to 7th May 2017

Last year we did a flyout to Le Mans to see our good friends at Jota Sport for the weekend before the great 24 hour race. This year we're going one better and be with them for an actual race weekend. To make an even bigger change we have also chosen to go to a different circuit - the legendery Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. This should be a fantastic flyout to a beautiful part of the world with some fantastic behind the scenes access to a top LMP 2 race team.

We'd love to get as many helicopters as we can going - the more the merrier. There will be a two night stay in Spa, as close to the circuit as we can make it and there may even be some alcohol consumed!?! Please let us know if you're at all interested.

Previous Social Events

This is where you'll find write ups of some of our previous social occasions that we've held. These are normally on our quarterly newsletter which you can sign up for above, but sometimes there is just too much to say for it to all fit on the newsletter!?!

Le Mans Flyout - 11th to 14th June 2016

After lots of planning or booking everything was in place for four aircraft flyout to Le Mans over the weekend. Then last minute someone bent an R44 that we were to borrow. Lots of rushed phone calls and thankfully Peter Faulding came to the rescue and allowed us to borrow his machine. Thanks Peter!

Lifting from a private field near Steyning on the Saturday morning the weather all looked good and we had a lovely flight across the channel to Le Touquet for lunch.

French burgers consumed it was on southwards to Le Mans. We had some pretty poor weather in the last few miles and ended up creeping in to the airfield at a somewhat lower level than was ideal.

Once there and after a great meal a heavy night on the town took ensued. Some of the revellers not getting back until close to breakfast time! On to the circuit for our back paddock access with Team Jota. This was utterly fantastic with all the team members making us feel welcome and giving us plenty of time to answer all our questions.

The Sunday night was once a gain a little messy for some, whereas others took to their beds a little earlier this time.

The return leg to Rouen went well, but during lunch the weather deteriorated and we had to wait a couple of hours for the weather. Some used this lul to catch up on some sleep. Once airbourne again the weather just got better and better as we crossed back to blighty.

This was a fantastic flyout with various calls to do the same again next year.
