I seem to remember these a few years ago. What happened to them? Are they no longer produced? Apologies to the ladies on the forum, if this considered in any way a sexist thread, which it isn't!

The Pilots Pals calendar was produced from the early 1970's until 2000 (or was it 2001). The Pilots Pals bar still runs at Biggin Hill and many of the photos taken for the calendar adorn the walls.

I used to buy this regularly, and still have some up in the loft. I seem to remember they lost some printing deal they had, and the last calendar they offered was horribly expensive. Could be wrong.

It was a rather curious item. Nothing vulgar, like a motorparts calendar, and yet not clean enough to hang on the wall in an office. I always wondered whether there was really a market for it, and then it disappeared and I got my answer.

Mike: Please read my signature and amend your post!! I promise to delete this line, if you do. I was never offended by Pilot Pals. I found them rather funny. The poor girls were trying desperately hard to emulate the allure of the Dunlop calendars, but had the most abysmal weather and surroundings to work with. It just made me want to put a warm blanket around them and feed them hot cocoa. Vino Collapso: Welcome to the forum. If you happen to venture into the bar, do let me know if the signature of the "Pink Peril" still adorns the walls.

First of all sorry for reviving this old thread however I have a friend who appeared in one of the calendars (1994) and all she has is a very tatty copy I'm looking for anyone who may have the 1994 calendar who could scan "Caroline" for me. Thanks, J

Pilot's Pals calendar. Unadorned sexist filth. Should be banned along with page 3 of The Sun. However, you may PM me for my address, should you wish to send me proofs of the images and to provide opinion as to whether they are fit for public view. I am also available to edit and provide opinion on the choices of images for publication - all in the name of research, you understand.:diablo: Anon.

Some of the models might be offended by your opinion. They were artists doing art, not common tarts. You might want to post your address so any offended models will know where to go to punish you. They probably think you need to be spanked....:D With apologies to the Monty Python group for a shamless theft of the Castle Anthrax scene from the Holy Grail film...
