Each year the Squadron promotes a series of flying events between March and November.  Typically three events are based on military airfields to promote current FAA activity. Squadron members will fly in, but also members of the military and others will attend who can be relied upon to promote the cause of Naval Aviation and help recruitment.

Squadron members and guests are welcome to fly or drive to all events.

It is helpful for planning that we have an idea of numbers attending each event at the start of the year.  Therefore we ask members to fill in an 'Intention To Attend' form which helps us with forward planning especially for deployments abroad. 

Booking forms for each event on the programme will come out a month in advance. 

Please book the dates in your diary and we look forward to seeing you all over the year.
