On that note, I must mention a big ‘Welcome’ to all the BIH students and Self-Fly Hirers who are making their way to us since BIH closed its doors on the 31st July.
Hope you enjoy our Newsletter – there are two opportunities coming up to join us and meet the EBG Team and fellow members. Our BBQ which is on 27th September and our Fireworks Evening on 7th November.
For those of you who are new to EBG we have attached the previous newsletter so you can see what else we have been up to recently. (Spring Newsletter 2015). Looking forward, we hope you will enjoy being an active member of the EBG Club!

The early departure was requested by the customers as the aircraft was due to feature on the ‘This Morning’ show that very day.
