GASCo Safety Evening - Fri 31 Mar @ 17:30

A representative from GASCo will be holding a Safety Evening at the clubhouse this coming Friday 31st March @ 1730, all members are encouraged to attend.

GASCo delivers Safety Evenings on behalf of CAA. The evening is designed to provide an opportunity to reflect on General Aviation safety as it affects you, the people you fly with and your clubs and associations. We hope that by the end of the evening you will have identified some ideas that you can build on to make your flying even safer and that you will feel able to share your thoughts with other members of the audience. The presenters are certainly not here to preach to you and their aim is to facilitate a useful, thought-provoking and enjoyable exchange of views on how to improve flight safety. They will share some of the latest information together with their thoughts and ideas with you during the evening.

Sad day for Aviation in Ireland

Today our thoughts and prayers are with all involved after the tragic accident involving RESCUE 116.

The Ulster Flying Club offer their condolences to the lost crew, their families and colleagues.


Thruster to Fast Jets for Ross

Ross Spence learnt to fly at Newtownards on the School Thruster Microlight and in 2015  gained his National Private Pilot’s License (Microlight) . He  subsequently applied to join the RAF and was accepted for Officer training . Today  (5/2/2017) we heard that from an intake of 19 only six Officers have been accepted to train on Fast Jets and Ross is one of them.

We are proud of Ross’s achievement and hope that the other trainees in his squadron are able to keep up with a pilot that learned to fly on a Thruster.
