yes, you can book a caravan slot on your pilot application form.

A couple of points you might consider, like an informal practice prior to the actual flight demonstration. No need for an aircraft, you can "walk" the demo on the ground with your fellow pilots. It's like the aerobatic guys using little hand held stick airplanes "flying" through the maneuvers before the actual flight. By forming up in two's, one on the left and one on the right sides of the "runway" then alternate your takeoff roll, get into position for the circuits, you will get the group in the air much faster. Decide on the number of circuits you plan to do, how much separation between aircraft and what calls to make for maneuver changes like takeoff, landing, where to make your turns and what to do in an emergency. Start with a plan and follow through with it. Agree that if the weather conditions are not suitable, then all stand down and go to "Plan B". It's also very important that each pilot have a spotter and have a plane in front of the crowd at all times.

And, nothing makes a team more cohesive like wearing the same shirt with a nice slogan like "SV-4B Stampe Demonstration Team" or something like that. A nice logo could be a Belgian roundel with a Stampe silhouette over it.

Just some ideas, I wish I could be there to enjoy the fun.

ohhhhhhhh. not sure, we would have to ask the farmer.

Michael, a great idea but i think for this first effort some of your suggestions are probably a bridge too far. If we start doing it regularly then absolutely.

The idea of flying in pairs is quite nice though and it might be a good idea to pair models with similar power plants as their performance will be similar. A great deal comes down to how many stampes we get.

I have just been emailed my pilots form. Pilots briefing is 09:00 each day. I shall be travelling up Friday pm. Would Friday evening be a good time to meet?

The airfield is live to full size until the exact start time of the show on Saturday morning. There is no flying until ATC formally say so which is fair enough IMO. Its a shame, some Friday evening flying would be nice but its a full size airfield and we have to respect that as I'm sure we all agree.

I will probably come up Saturday morning as I'm still working on Friday and I don't know if there will be time. I will see closer to the day but usually I arrive about 8 on the Saturday morning.

I must be missing something here. First I have heard about prospective pilots needing to register individually. Where did this come from?

I have never booked into wobbly wheels show as always gone as a helper and not had to do any paper work.

I dont know if we have to book in as a Team, if we did some one would have to take care of sending out pilots passes as i doubt if wobbly wheels would send all passes to individual team members addresses

Hi this is what I sent to wobbly wheel admin on 5th Jan and had no reply to.

Hi,
A small group of fellow flyers are wishing to do a display with approx 6 Precedent Stampe's,it's a bit 80ish and possibly oldie but goodie type of flying,
Please can you advise me on how I need to get slot booked
Many thanks
Bert

Correct, Martin, it’s on the form. If I can ( I’m no computer genius) send a copy to the rest of the group. Send me a pm with your email.
