Hopefully it'll also put some of the more ridiculous assertions that NIAL are anti-GA to rest.
Well I wouldn't go that far, nor buy what NIAL officials have said regarding this deal, but it's welcome news all the same.

Dunno why but I can't get too carried away by all of this, just yet.
If the Club re-starts in some form or another but, it all seems a little uncertain at the moment.

Perhaps its after all those past hopes were dashed etc I don't want to get all excited.

Got everything crossed for it though.

MB : you are voted foreperson of the "former members get together meeting "
And what does being the foreperson entail?

I'm pleased that Northumbria Helicopters is taking over the flying training.
Does anyone know who Neil's instructors are likely to be?

He did mention possibly Ian Martin and John Corlett as well as Kev from Northumbria Helicopters. I don't think there's anyone else he mentioned.

Two out of three ain`t bad.

Your guess people! Which is the odd one out.

Mu Beta and ALL Pruners how about Millers 8pm 27th Feb for a chat and drinks, even something to eat?

Lets not hope for a bar in the club in the near future, or ever.

It would seem to be moving forward as the sitting tenants were removed from the club hangar yesterday and rumour has it that the locks have been changed.

they were parked on the apron and the Kestevan and co aircraft was put back in the Bellman. !




The meeting at the Millers is a great idea, Iwill be there definately

Talk about "after the horse has bolted!".

My suggestion to meet at Millers, way back on page 25 (2nd Jan) fell on deaf ears!

So most people here are happy to vent their anger and slag everyone off (including the new owner, who now appears to be a popular chap), but are happy to sit back and let others do the hard work.

I'm being to change my mind about Hope2 now, but there again, the horse has already bolted so it's too late. We'll have to bring some print-outs of his posts to the pub though, see if we can decipher them!

The 27th Feb looks good for me.

Looks like it is just you and me shaun !

MB is getting slagged off because it would appear to have been a one horse race. If Neil Clark is to run the flying side from the old hanger all well and good, the whole thing maybe a token gesture but at least we have, Flight training/Bar/Resturant as stated in previous post "open to pass holder airport staff and former aero club members " . remember they do not have to give us anything
MB payed up for the club and can do with it as he pleases within the confines of lease etc and I'm led to believe he could have got out of providing FT.

All of the people are not happy all of the time.


At least we have/will have something.

Be there on the 27th !!!!!!!

Hi all

Good news that all seems to be resolved but having read page13 of the Journal :





Mr Ballinger, said the acquisition could help strengthen the business, further opening the North to the rich and famous.

"In the past we have had to share a taxiway with the aero club," he said.

"This has always been a difficult relationship but now we will be able to rationalise a lot of their movements.

"The more we can rationalise this side of the airport, the swifter our operation will be, and the better the service."

Mr Ballinger,61, said:"It will enable us to give our clients maximum confidentiality and security from the one site, without disrupting the north side of the air-strip."






I have some doubts.

Rationalise an interesting word derived frome "to ration"

So maybe the new broom is not so clean then. Keep the common aero club types away from the great and good like our illustrious regional footballers and their hangers on, our great politicians and royalty, with a few nuveau riche (like MB) . If there's any spare space let the occasional training flight get off when there's nobody important around to get offended, thats if we can be bothered to refuel them. I could be wrong here but wasn't it NC who instigated the club's bowser purchase in the dim and distant to overcome the tardy service from Samson??

Latest on the new instructor line up JC/Kev/IC/IM/LB/MB and wait for it.... the new CFI....KL!! presumably doing one trip each per week.

I must say, I wasn't too happy about the article. After making it seem like the flight training was the priority this was rather disapointing. Why should celebrities have priority over student pilots.

The instructor line up seems good though!

Lets hope the aero club is a club - not a parking area for celebs.

Is Foxtrot that congested??? Me thinks holding at Foxtrot for the continuous stream of Easyjets is the main problem. The soft shouldn't need such a long backtrack, should they?

Where did you hear that? It's news to me.

KL has not been asked, and IC has gone to do a 737 rating at Bournemouth.

The list does not make a lot of sense IM is a full time surgeon
IC has work and AB is doing 73 rating and I would think KL is persona non gratia, so it looks like "Kev" and the maestro himself.

Dont let Kev near the RT and your'e ok !!!! (only kidding Kevin )


As rightly stated in previous post the school aircraft always gave way to commercial traffic,looks like somebody is speaking with brown lips !


Anybody seen Hope 2 or is he still in the straight jacket and can't type. ( I know you are there, we miss you )

Back to the padded cell, Night All

YES Millers is the old Wheatsheaf.

Are we all turning up at different times, or are we going to congregate about the same time, reason for asking is this, it might be worthwhile reserving a part of the bar for us, rather than been spread out like sheeps s t,all over the place.

Kev isn't that bad surely. Ok, he may have a very slightly detectable geordie accent but I heard he'd taken up heli flying? The man has obviously seen the light.
