TVSA Aerotow

The TVSA would like to invite you all to our 2 Aerotow meetings at the Vale Of The White Horse Gliding Centre at Shrivenham near Swindon. Camping is available from the Friday evening, but you must depart on the Sunday evening.

As usual, we do not have exclusive use of the site and the full size gliding will continue alongside us. In fact, they are having an Open day to the public, where they will be offering trial flights at a cost, so if you fancied going up in a full size and having a bit of a go, then you could do this and fly your models on the same day.

There are toilets on site and usually somebody from their club does bacon or sausage butties for us (though this is not guaranteed) and sometimes an Ice Cream van turns up after lunch.

Ray will be there from the Friday late afternoon for the weekend, so come and join us.
