Thumbs up Informal heli nights UK (including arrangements)

If anyone is up for coming to some evenings arranged around the uk (obviously depends on numbers of people and locations etc) maybe you cold put your name below and where you are based/where you are prepared to travel to. Hope VeeAny will step in to help out here possibly too.
Anyone else interested?

Plan is heli pilots of all experience ie FI's/PPL/CPL/ATPL/people thinking about it etc etc. No pressure. Few beers. Discussions on all aspects including safety and experiences.

Yep, count me in please............Newcastle, Yorkshire, Southern Scotland.

Helimutt, Newcastle Aero Club Bar or Wings as it now is, sounds the perfect venue........but then I would say that as I only live 5 minutes away!

Excellent idea! When I went to Phil Croucher's CRM course, everyone gained something by just chatting to another pilot with different experiences!

Hi Guys & Gals

I'd definitely be interested in getting together (depending on location)

I am located around Buckinghamshire but will travel within reason.

The problem will be finding a venue that will be able to handle all the ego's

i would suggest no caa ....by the time they have made you fill in the entry forms in triplicate and insisted on a bi annual beer mug test...and made sure all participants are current in the art of mopping any spillage and got a licence for the carriage of alcohol signed off ...we will all have gone home.
Then of course you will have to worry about your duty hours if this is "work" ..not to mention getting the bar licenced for more than 6 sit downs in the day . As you can see i do not believed that increased beaurocracy equals increased safety. What we need is experienced pilots offering advice and not a bunch of desk jockeys. North Yorks.

as I already said. totally informal nights. The only thing making it an official safety night would do was scare people off. Lets keep it in a bar or similar. over beers or similar. only heli pilots or people with a direct interest ie student pilots (not press!!)
Hopefully all types of different experience levels.
Looks like we might be able to arrange a few meets so far.
