Ooer ! The plot thickens... If the above sightings are true, I am amazed that KL was allowed to get anywhere near NC's aircraft. I thought he would be staying at Eshott for good. Is NC having trouble getting hold of instructors? Or have we been a bit niave on just where the real allegiances lie? Are things different to what they seem on the face of it?

This (accidental?) liquidation and takeover clique story just keeps rolling on.......

I spoke to NC today and the aircraft that he will be using are getting C O A 'S as required, and other things are in the pipeline so to speak.

Gut feeling is good things to come,I think I can speak for the true members of the old club and " the Millers prruners " to wish him all the best and support him. ( as long as the price is right !)

Lowandslow : Contact Samson for landing/handling cost approx 30

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??
Twin Farms is a good Idea Im up for that.

The Airport seem to be dragging there heels regarding fixing the roof (in more than one place) on the club.

They need to seal (honk honk) the roof so I can repair walls and ceiling, bit pointless doing it twice.

The forcast is, to open on the 13th April, all been well, I`ll miss it ,I fly to Florida on the 10th, (s**t happens)

How about Twin Farms before 10th April, someone else can choose a date and time this time.

Keep the BLUE side up, unless you aerobat.

hi all


I was chatting today and we got on the subject of why NC departed as chairman of NAC. I was told he resigned as a result of unfairly dismissing a member of staff (a hidden microphone was used to record his actual reasons which differed from the reasons he publicly stated). This resulted in a costly legal battle for NAC. It was also suggested that KL benefited from this.

Can anyone confirm or deny this rumour?

One thing I can confirm is that nobody can instruct from Eshott as it's not licenced for Class A. What Keith Lister was doing there was a check ride I think. I believe renewals can also be done from there too. But certainly no instructing.

As far as I can gather Neil Clark is operating using self- employed instructors. If someone asks for a specific instructor, that's who they'll get, so if someone asked for Keith they'd get him.
Of course we've got to remember that only Keith, John C and Steve Marples are examiners around here so Keith'll be needed in that capacity too.

With regard to Neil's resignation from the committee, there was a lot of acrimony at the time and many rumours circulted. What was true and what wasn't it's very hard to say, but I've never heard any mention that Keith benefited from this before...and I really doubt that it is the case to be honest.

I'll tell you one thing for free though, the litigation that went on at NAC was ridiculous and a complete waste of our money...if the stupid court battles that were persued hadn't been and common sense had prevailed I doubt if there would have been any need for administration because our finances would have been healthy enough to pay the other bills. Go on someone...tell me I'm wrong.

Twin Farms is an excellent place to get together by the way.

Bollocks!

There is no question, though, that NAC spent far too much money on solicitors and not enough on aeroplanes.

MB : You are dead right !!


The post just shows what a petty bunch was voted to committee
and that there was a large amount of money to be wasted on litigation.

Reallity check, The Newcastle Aero Club is dead and gone thanks to the mismanagement by certain individuals.

However, it does not make any difference to any one of us now who is employed to do what in whatever capacity,If you don't like them don't fly with them,simple.

Are we interested in aviation or agravation ?

Hi All,

How does Sunday the 3rd of April fit dairy-wise for a regathering of PPRuNers? This would allow MA the chance to attend before he zaps off to see uncle sam, and perhaps we can get an update on buildings progress ahead of the opening of WINGS.

I thought Twin Farms might be the venue and we could aim for a 7:30 - 8:00ish (T/Jet please note this is pm and not am). Now before someone shouts "who died, and put you in charge?" it is only a suggestion and if everyone else fancies Millers then I'm happy(ish) to go there. If 03/04 is no good then I'm happy to fit in with whatever date you all suggest.

Paris Dakar 3rd

Thank you for the thought, 3rd of April, Fantastic, Twin Farms, Great.

As far as the club goes, the Asbestos people were back in today,(Orders of upper management at EGNT) they were told to Investigate, under floors, and above ceilings for signs of contamination, above ceilings were fine, under floors were contaminated. But, because there is a wooden floor on top of a wooden floor, they deemed it to be safe.

However the cellar where the central heating wife, sorry BOILER is could take a while to sort out.

Apparently it will take up to two weeks to inform the Government about the Asbestos (I think that is because it is in a building frequented by the public) Then according to the guys that were there, "it is a piece of p**s to get rid of.

We still are no further forward with getting the roof sealed, latest thing is, it is not the roof leaking , it is the render work on the outside that is letting in water. LOAD OF BULL.

On a lighter note I should be up in the clouds again, Tuesday/Wednesday.

What does it feel like to be kept informed, without rumours

MA

Just checked, no footy on 3rd April. I was so bolloxed after watching the Newcastle-Bolton game then the Chelsea-Liverpool final back to back in the pub on the 27th Feb, there was nay chance on me getting to Millers that night. Sorry 'bout that.

Twin Farms is a much better choice than Millers too. Hopefully I'll make it next time (although Mrs 377 is looking for a holiday during the school break).

Clarification

Hi All,

Happyeater - the venue is Twin Farms, not Millers.

BTTF - Many thanks for the update on WINGS - you might still make the opening day/night after all if the hold ups continue.

GonTek - A flight in a shiny 172 SP would be very nice indeed, I'm in Leeds for the next couple of days and I've got a 'do' to go to on Fri so I'm running out of days this week. I'll ring you when I get back and we'll see if we can sort something for the week after if that's ok by you?

PD

GonTek: You old cynic!

I don't think I have ever been in The Twin Farms - is it OK?

I remember our ex-chairman and his cling-on's used to go so we all avoided the place, didn't want bits of his "wig" blowing into our soup..

Scandal

Smithy!

I love the place, always been close to my heart and of course with Miss TJ coming from there I will always be bias!

Was there last weekend and I think the only scandal was a bit of sheep rustling(?) at Outchester! and apart from that we were both quite drunk in The Lord Crewe Arms..

I wonder how long before GonTek starts with the sheep jokes!!!
