LATEST CLUB UPDATES
NEW YEAR MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Happy New Year to all our Members and Visitors.
Let’s hope 2022 brings us many happy hours in the air this year and that we can enjoy a bumper year filled with lots of flying, social events and fun.
Can we also please remind those members who have not yet renewed their membership to so so as soon as possible by contacting the flight desk to arrange payment. The membership fees have been held at the 2021 rate, although we have had to make some increases on our aircraft hire and instructor rates. We had to make the changes due to rising costs and inflation. Our rates remain highly competitive. These price changes have been updated on the SAC website.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you in the club again soon.
Best wishes for a great 2022.
