We had a great turn out to the Start of Season BBQ at Hangar One this past weekend. The weather was perfect and the EBG Pilots brought lots of very satisfied smiles.
The day started out with Instructors Joe and Ken doing some lessons in the Robinson R44 and R22 with some of our regular students and Dave (also an Instructor and Commercial Pilot) taking an R44 out over London for a photography shoot. Dave removed one of the doors on the R44 for his charter flight, and fitted the customer with a harness so he had maximum movement whilst remaining safely in the aircraft, and Joe with it being so warm also decided to remove the doors on the R22 (see below!)
One O’Clock soon came around and the Barbeque began in earnest Linda and Nick (mostly Linda) did an amazing job with the food salad, pasta, chicken wings, burgers & baps, sausages and rolls plus lots of sweet treats too. The afternoon consisted of lazing in the sun, catching up with other EBG Club members, their friends and family and lots and lots of EC120 taster flights!
