Members and friends of the PRBA have been invited to a weekend of fun AND training at Hibaldstow Aerodrome.
We need to assess the need for training so if you are thinking of coming along, please let us know in advance what training is required.
The training will now be flying training/tethering etc. as the uptake for ground school training has not been massive, however we will also be holding a session for pilots to add a drop licence to their skills.
We will be based on the airfield (camping free of charge). There are also rooms available in the bunk house ranging from dorm style at £6 per night, to family rooms up to £40 per night. there are showers, toilets, a cafe/restaurant, and a bar all available on site, and lots of people jumping out of planes!
The rooms available to book are hot property so get in touch very quickly as they are booked up well in advance.
As well as training, get your competition hats on and compete for the Autumn Gold Trophy. The task is set by whoever won the trophy the previous year, so that goes to Covid19 to set the task!
We also have the 'Gassing' trophy in memory of Terry Chamberlain for you all to compete as a minimum distance task.
There aren't many balloon meets in this area and balloons are welcomed by the locals. So please come along and take advantage of a bargain weekend and ALSO A GOOD VENUE FOR THE LONG JUMP LAUNCH BEING ALMOST ON THE EAST COAST.
