Not much has happened this month so this will be a pretty short update. Thank you to those of you who have taken the time to check our events and let us know if you will be attending. The August events are listed and linked below.
The end of July seen a number of people lose membership because of lack of activity. If you are one and you think we have made a mistake, please contact Steggles to work it out. Remember we base activity off of the attendance replies to our events.
The first phase of the new TS permissions has been implemented as well. If you have any problems with TS, please PM or e-mail Steggles.
Thank you to everyone who put forward donations this month.
Windy has put together a syllabus for those of you who would like to participate and improve your flying skills. The purpose of this is to provide training to everyone in the Squad that wants it, enable them to fly better and operate all our aircraft types to a set standard, with others, in consistent effective manner and to train you in a similar manner to the RAF and the USAF flying training schools. We will use techniques from both organizations and give you an idea of what military training is like. If you would like to get a good handle on your flying skills and earn the squadron wings ribbon then go check it out here.
The helo qualification has also been put together. See here for more info! The medal for this is currently being created.
No big changes here. The server is not running the latest release because of ED doing normal ED stuff. Server version currently is 1.5.6.
