Following the very successful Cross Country Initiative, begun in 2014, we have now upgraded our club fleet with Flarm and enhanced avionics to encourage members to take advantage of the possibilities that Cross Country flying can offer.

To this end, we have gathered information on this page to form a central resource for aspiring and seasoned cross country pilots in the club.

You can view the resources by just clicking on them, or you can Right-Click and “Save Target As …” to download a copy to your computer.
