Gastro-trip to France 14 April

A group is forming to arrange a fly-out trip to northern France over the weekend of 14-15 April (the weekend after Easter), 2 nights away - weather permitting. Either Friday-Sunday or Saturday-Monday.

This is designed especially to encourage those pilots who may not have done this sort of thing before, i.e. providing assistance with flight planning, routes, notams, customs etc. The intention is to clear customs at Cherbourg (circa 300 nm from Dublin) and carry on to somewhere more sympa nearby such as Bagnoles or Le Mans for the main objective - some proper French food :D

Some may choose to land in SW England (e.g. Dunkeswell) en route.

A meeting will be held tomorrow (Tuesday) night at EINC to firm up participants etc. All welcome.

Those unable to go to France may wish to consider instead the ILAS breakfast fly-in at Taghmon on Sunday 15 April.
