Held on Saturday 11th February 2017, the event centered around technology and the challenges that come with it in terms of ‘on-line’ safety etc. The Club’s participation was aimed primarily at giving children (and parents) an insight into the hobby, particularly given the recent explosion of interest in ‘Drones’.
A joint initiative with the CI Director of Aviation aimed at giving prospective and existing drone operators, the relevant safety and ‘legal’ information that is essential when operating these type of craft.
The event as a whole was hugely successful and our displays were very well received by the public as you can see from the following photos, some of which were taken in the few ‘quieter’ times.
Huge thanks to Mike Burton, Andy Best, Phil Collenette, Chris Bougourd, Ian Barker, Mick Wilkinson, Dave Wilkinson, Paul Reynolds, Julian Nield and Peter Rihoy (sadly unable to make it on the day due to illness); for providing models and much appreciated help in setting up and breaking down the displays.
