Following further discussions within the last week with the CAA/NATS the arrivals (& departure) arrangements for North Weald during the Air-Britain Fly-In have been amended to ease the burden on Farnborough and Essex Radar, to help all pilots, and to enable non-transponder equippped aircraft easier access to NW for our event. Details of the changes, which I hope is self explanatory, can be found on our updated website http://www.air-britainflyin.co.uk/html/arrivals_by_air.html If you have any questions about this please contact The Squadron at North Weald on +44 (0)1992 524510. For those yet to arrange your PPR slot for Saturday or Sunday arrivals these are filling fast so please contact the Squadron soon. (NO PPR is required for Friday arrivals). Please pass this information to any fellow pilots who plan or may wish to join us. I look forward to seeing some of you at North Weald this weekend. G-APDK

Moggy Sorry you can't be with us, but your PA-22 will be most welcome as it is one of our theme types With the PPR bookings climbing well over 70 with aircraft coming from as far as Switzerland (A Falco) by the time I left North Weald this evening, its looks as if we could be busy with an interesting array of aircraft The first arrival for the Fly-In actually arrived this afternoon all the way from the Czech Republic in the rare shape of a L-20 Meta-Sokol G-APDK
