Weekend Flying,

Does weekend flying still happen at these bases.

I am travelling Nth on the 4th Mar and was going to make a detour past, if it was worth while.

I will be on the A1 or A15 so diverting is no problem.

Might be worth liking the 7 AEF page on Facebook, they usually update if there is likely to be flying each weekend.

Below is there info from this weekend


Not the best forecast for the weekend at the moment I am afraid!

Sun looks like being a showery day, but I am hopeful we can get some flying in.

Sat is a problem, as the flying will depend on how far a weather front progresses to the east before returning west. Based on current information, the forecaster is pessimistic about the chances of flying tomorrow.

I will not cancel yet, but check back here tomorrow before setting off for the airfield.
