Military Civil Aviation Safety Days (MCASDs) Saturday 22nd April 2017 - RAF Linton-on-Ouse
Registrations forms for this MCASD are now available from the GASCo Office. The list will be closed on Friday 7th April.

These days which are supported by military aviation authorities and the CAA provide the opportunity for GA Pilots to visit military air bases and receive briefings on the flying activities undertaken there as well as other topical safety matters and meet military aviators to exchange views and promote better understanding of both communities. For those with an aircraft a little more directionable than our balloons, there is invariably the much prized opportunity to fly in to the host air station with further attraction of a landing fee waiver. In addition to the flight safety briefings the host station will normally arrange for a tour or display of one or more station activities or historic connections of interest. Lunch and Refreshments are provided for a modest charge.

In addition to the presentations and information exchange described above the day will also feature a static display of aircraft based at RAF Linton-on-Ouse and nearby RAF Leeming. There will also be a chance to visit the The Memorial Room which was created to honour all those who served at Linton-on-Ouse and its satellite airfields in peace and war since 1937. It commemorates all those who have died whilst serving at these airfields and especially the more than 2000 air and ground-crew of the Allied air forces who died during the Second World War and contains hundreds of exhibits, photographs and first-hand accounts from that period.
