Solo Pilots Meet and Greet.
Thanks to the airfield manager for making the arrangements and to Josie for providing the buffet.
On Wednesday 25th October a group of members met in the Lock cafe to introduce themselves and discuss the benefits of Buddy flying. Members ranged from those still in the early stages of training to experienced pilots with many hours flying in different aircraft types. Some had their own aircraft or shares in a syndicate, others were "renters". All agreed that there was much to be gained from sharing flights. Experience could be shared, workload reduced, individual costs reduced and confidence gained to plan more ambitious flights. Of course, having someone like-minded to chat to while flying straight and level is also a bonus. A contact list will be drawn up and circulated to those present and other members who are interested. In addition, there is a closed Facebook group (Shropshire Aero Club) that members can join for general discussions of all things Sleap, but also to arrange shared flights.
