Description

Neil and Tim are determined that we all get a taste of the Lake District. Following the dissapointment of having to cancel the 2017 event, they've opted to go for a date in May in the hope of beating the weather.

Taking inspiration from Arthur Wainwright's love of the lakeland fells and landscape, the tasks will be designed to take in the very best that the Lake District has to offer.

They'll be delighted to extend a warm welcome to pilots of all abilities for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend in June enjoying some fantastic flying and scenery.

Tim Burrow and Neil King are your contacts for further details.
