Statement 2020

At this time the media, press, politicians and many in the world of aviation are struggling to find the words to describe the situation in which we find ourselves. On a personal and global level we have had to make swift adjustments to our lives and for some there have been long term decisions to make which have brought their own challenges. The Vintage Aircraft Club has a 350 members from all walks of life. Some are airline captains, Air Traffic Controllers or Airfield Managers and many are PPL’s. Some work for the NHS and others are engineers, designers, photographers, aviation historians and writers, enthusiasts and amateur aircraft builders. As a club we are a family of like minded individuals sharing similar values and interests and also playing our part in the larger world of GA. Going through a shared experience of such magnitude together brings a different focus and I would like to think we are all in a situation where we can support one another in whatever way is appropriate.

Our Events timetable seems more like a ‘wish list’ at present and we will have to see as the weeks go by how our calendar will proceed. However, this is not the first time that the world has lived through such a devastating and disruptive experience and we will come out the other side, possibly stronger and closer for the shared experience. We as a club look forward to that time and we look forward to the resumption of our daily activities as and when we can. In the meantime keep safe and contact us should you wish or need to do so.
