Thanks to the generosity of the Management, Air Traffic Control, Mann Aviation, Flying Clubs, Owner Pilots and Ground Staff at Fairoaks Airport, 96 members of the Woking Branch of the Aircrew Association (ACA) and their families were given pleasure flights at their meeting on Tuesday 16 May.

Using three of the Club's training aircraft and five aircraft kindly made available for the occasion by their owner pilots, each flight lasted about 20 minutes round the local area, taking in views of Woking, the A3, Wisley and the M25.

Following this hectic but very pleasant activity, everyone concerned joined the Members in a plentiful and tasty buffet supper.

Chairman Jimmy James thanked all those who had made this wonderful evening possible, emphasising how nice it was to see our principal guests, the Ladies, enjoying themselves amongst us.
