Corona Virus and flying

Post by Trevor Robinson » Tue Mar 24, 2020 8:36 pm

The committee of the NHPC have decided to close our sites to flying, as have our surrounding clubs. Government restrictions on travel and reasons to be away from home leave little option.
Also it is the right thing to do. A flying accident now would put the NHS under further stress as well as generating bad press for our sport and club.. The situation will be kept under review but our passion is just a hobby and we need to comply with the present restrictions which are imposed for a far more important issue.
Please do not fly our sites till further notice.
Thank you
Trevor Robinson
Chair NHPC

As we all expect some relaxation in the lockdown guidance in the near future please be aware that the Northumbria sites remain closed.
This will be reviewed when more details are known AND when we get the 'green light' from the BHPA that flying can resume
