Training Programme - Sun 19 Jul 09

Quite an 'ordinary' parade for a change! RTF will be starting Comms, whilst the rest of the Squadron get stuck into Projects. However, a couple of extra things are happening:

Firstly, coveralls are being issued, with priority being given to a) Those going on Summer Camp, b) Those going gliding, and c) Members of the Comms and Gardening project groups;

Vigilant Break - Frank Mink

Secondly, we have been allocated 8 Gliding Induction Course places for the afternoon. Most places were allocated on Wednesday evening, however, if you would like to be on the reserve list, bring along a packed lunch and soft shoes!

Dress is No 2C (Working Blues)

Telephone and Answerphone Problems

We are currently having problems with our answerphone system, and can only take calls during parade hours.

You can try Skyping us at 'CoventryAirportSqn' (calls may be answered by any of the staff currently monitoring Skype), or leave a message on our temporary voicemail number, 0560 3663 121. This is a VOIP number, and should be charged at the equivalent of national (landline) call rate. It may not however be included in your 'free calls' allowance.

Skype Me™!

Training Programme - Sun 12 Jul 09

This Sunday the Squadron will be stretching it's legs and heading round the corner for a tour of the Coventry Airport Air Traffic Control. RTF will visit the Tower facility before returning to the HQ for a timely 'Airmanship 1' lesson on airfields. The rest of the Sqn will also get to see the Approach Control room (RADAR).

The four cadets selected for Gliding Induction Courses will join RTF for the tower visit, then depart straight from the Tower for the VGS. GIC'ers are reminded to bring packed lunches, bottled drinks, and soft shoes.
