Calling All Discus Pilots….

The Discus main-wheel tyre is worn and needs replacing.  In addition, the tail-wheel hub is mis-shapen and requires replacement.  There are new main-wheel tyres in the workshop stock cupboard and a new tail-wheel has been ordered (Jon Arnold is hoping to collect it from Southern Sailplanes on Friday 2 Nov).  Unfortunately we will be losing some flying days to other airfield users so why not use this time, find a friendly glider inspector and help keep your glider in tip top condition!

All Change!

Mike Swanson has taken over from Jon Butler as club Secretary. We would like to thank Jon for his dedication to date and welcome Mike Swanson into the role.

We also welcome Neil Geraghty as the new Civilian Representative member on the Committee, a post that has been vacant for a short while.

Gaz Baker is also now officially announced as the Parachute Member for the club, although he was voted in at the AGM in 2010, yes – he has been doing this role for some time – it was never minuted.

Ken Reid has decided to step down as DCFI & Safety Officer. We thank Ken for his efforts over the years.   With people at GSA clubs having so much commitment elsewhere, there will now be two DCFI positions.  First into one of these roles will be Steve Tape.  Those that know Steve Tape will realise his exceptional commitment to Bannerdown from club soaring weeks and expeditions.  The second DCFI position and Safety Member are currently vacant.
