We are looking for volunteers to man the radio. We imagine it will be in two-three hour slots and are collecting names at this point. You will receive full training on how to provide an Air-Ground Radio service.
Don’t worry about committing too much time to us. We will only ask you to do what you can and when you can.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name down.
The internet services are now back online.
Eshott Airfield are currently having difficulties with our internet connection. Our weather link has been down since 7th October. We hope to have it back online in the next seven days. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The 2014 Great North Fly In was a great success with good weather and over 170 aircraft arriving. We also had classic cars, live music, model aircraft, BBQ and Bar and many visitors.

On the evening of Saturday 28th June, Eshott Aerodrome will be hosting a hangar bash to celebrate the opening of Purple Aviation’s new hangar which will be named after our honorary member, Peter Bell. The aerodrome will also be accommodating the British National Competitions that weekend and we are sure that the competitors will be attending the event.
The event will be held in the Hangar. There will be a BBQ and drinks with live music and an opening ceremony with Peter Bell cutting the ribbon. In addition, we will be giving out Wings Awards to all those who have gained their licence with us since the last Wings Night.
We hope all members will attend what is intended to be a boost to the social side of the club.
The BMAA have opened up their annual bursary scheme allowing aspiring pilots aged 15-21 to gain their pilot’s licence. The bursaries levels can be for part of the course or the whole course.
