GASCO Safety evening - Monday 19th Feb, 7:30 to 9:30 pm at the Sea View Inn.

This is a joint event with Bowland Forest Gliding Club and is a safety talk delivered by GASCOo (General Aviation Safety Council).

These are very informative, interactive and thought provoking events.   This will be a tailored event covering topics across both our disciplines including Threat & Error Management, Loss of Control accidents, Electronic Conspicuity, Human Factors, we are also looking to have the opportunity to discuss the local issues, particularly the shared airspace around Parlick.

It is likely to be a packed room so turn up early!

Winter Hill – New Gate Code active from Fri 2nd Feb 2024

By Andy Archer on  February 4, 2024 14:46

Hi All,

The gate code for Winter Hill has been changed as of Friday 2nd Feb 24 @3pm.

Please contact a member of the committee for the new gate code (WhatsApp/text/Telegram/email/FB messenger)

Please follow the rules:

  1. Generally only the lower gate will be locked.
  2. If both gates are locked they will have the same code.
  3. The lock codes will be changed every 3 months or sooner if required.
  4. Do not allow anyone to tailgate you through the gate.
  5. Make sure the gate is locked shut behind you.  Do not leave unlocked, even if you know another member will be on their way in a few minutes.
  6. On securing the lock ensure you scramble the code, DO NOT leave it on the unlock code.
  7. PSC members must obtain the code from a member of the committee, DO NOT distribute it further.
  8. Report any suspicious behaviour to a member of the committee.

Thanks

Andy
