LONDON AREA INVITATION

To all Area & Club Examiners & Instructors to a Fixed Wing ‘A’ & ‘B’ and Helicopter ‘A’ Certificate Examiners / Instructors Workshop

The site is located at Church Rd, Sutton at Hone, Dartford, Kent, DA4 9HA. You can also GOOGLE Hawley Clay Shooting Ground, Bickley MFC is 250yds further along the lane past the shooting club and will be sign posted on the day.

This Examiner / Instructor workshop is being held to support the Achievement Scheme and to help improve consistency. We will also explain fully the new BPC tests and compulsory questions.

The purpose of the workshop is to allow Examiners, Instructors and pilots the opportunity to gain experience, share information and discuss the requirements of the ‘A’ and ‘B’  tests in a relaxed and informal environment. Everyone will be asked to ‘score’ individuals whilst mock tests are performed, following which there will be the opportunity to compare notes and discuss the flight and the test format in general.

Free refreshments (tea, coffee etc.) will be provided on arrival and during the afternoon as well as a BBQ at lunchtime. Unless the weather is extremely bad the workshop will take place as there is a large shelter on site.

This is likely to be a popular event, but numbers are limited, so please contact Dave Warren, event organiser and London Area  ASC, as soon as possible for further details and to reserve your place by email: davidwarren@clara.co.uk. If you have any questions please ring 07956 314371.

There are also a limited number of places available for ‘A’ and ‘B’ test candidates who will be very welcome. Preference will be given to those who are prepared to have a go at demonstrating the manoeuvres during the workshop.
