Exclamation PD/TJ/MB & H2F (sly monkey) & all

It was nice to meet other reprobate PPruners,shame more did not turn out.

As I said to Happyeater if all are willing,it could be a regular event.

I,m sure we can find something to talk about.


H2F : no need to hide your identity is known !

Is anybody going to arrange a celebratory fly past to get things going again (Mr Clark/Kev) it makes sense to advertise the fact .





Regards All

You're very welcome TJ, was a pleasure.

It really was good to see the faces to the names of a few characters from off here. I hope that a regular, or irregular, get togethers happen once 'Wings' opens later in March.

See you all around soon.

hello guys

well,

I don't know if you guys know what happened yesterday
at the club but it is a real SHAME.The airport ordered
ant and his gang out of the building and told them that
the building was condemned.Mainly due to the a high
health risk that it imposes, and also the rumour is that
MB isn't happy with it at all. The airport don't know what
they are going to do, either repair it or bring the building
down.this is just incredible isn't guys.

safe flying

mike

Danger in Club

I was the one working there when the airport turned up.

They wanted to know what we were doing, and how much Distruction was going to take place.

Then they mentioned ASBESTOS being present under the floors,
it was used for insulation of the heating pipes.

We were asked POLITLY to stop all work until the extent of the Asbestos had been determined.

It was at the time no more than a cover thier ass situation.

Never heard anything today.

By building, do you mean the Aero Club / restaurant and old flying school building? I understood that the 'New' school will be based in or near the training room area. Or, is this the building that you mean?

Sorry, Mike, I just wasn't clear about which building?

Great!
It never rains but it pours at that place!
I enjoyed Millers too, it was nice to meet new people and see some old friends.

Hi Gang

Had a chat with Anth re: asbestos.

The survey guy was in the club all day and his concerns were not as bad as I think everybody expected.

A full report will be given to MB (who is absolutely furious) and team tomorrow and any work to be carried out WILL be carried out by the airport authorities, however the areas affected were known to the airport already.
The boiler room downstairs and a small area of pipe lagging are the areas which have been highlighted.

This makes me think that if the EGNT authorities had carried out their landlord duties correctly the this problem wouldn't be an issue now.

Anyway, on a much lighter and more positive note - please check out:

www.wingsbar.co.uk

This excellent website for WINGS Bar & Restaurant was designed by Andrew Smith and he is found at the following:

Cheers

PS. Andrew - that's another 500.00 for the freebie advertising!

I suspect that if one were to look at the Aeroclub lease, it's actually a ground lease and therefore the general upkeep of the building is the responsibility of the lesee.....

Hi all work restarts tomorow, laidies toilets Contaminated, boiler room Contaminated, Flat, Contaminated.

That makes me feel sick, We refurished the flat last year.
Feel OK so far.

Don`t think the club will be open on the 20th of March, better to organise another Millers Night.

Let you all know how things go.

Safe Flying

Hi MA,

Thanks for the update!

I bet Mr B isn't too happy with the news? If you see him tell him not to worry - once the boys are back there drinking again he'll easily recoup any lost bar revenue, and that's just TJ on his own

Don't know about anyone else but I thought Millers was a bit 'iffy' pubwise I mean, not the folk there. We could always try Twin Farms just down the road??

Went for a fly today with JC, bloomin marvellous to get up in the clouds again (so to speak). Funny thing was JC asked if I'd ever flown with Keith Lister, I said that I hadn't then KL walked in complete with lumi-jacket. I didn't realise he was back as a FI?

I don't think Keith is instructing at EGNT? I've seen him there a few times recently but I presume he's doing something with the Provost or been in the hangar hence the hi vis jacket.

Was up at Northumbria Helecopters this morning and met a chap who was planned to do his skills test with, yup you guessed it, KL. He's examining etc alright. Just wasn't sure if he'd flown in to the sunset or not.

Exclamation

Never mind back to the future (no pun intended MA) it looks like a drift back to the past.



Some smells linger no matter what..


The asbestos problem was highlighted after Trish and Malcolm left
and nothing done by the then committee.

Somebody correct me if wrong but I think you will find he's probably on a self employed basis and not employed,he has to earn a crust now .
