The last few months seen a few additions onto the website, including notifications when events are scheduled and the ability to view all scheduled events from the 'More Events...' link in the sidebar and on mobile devices when the calendar can not be displayed.
The Helo Qualification wings were decided upon and have been awarded to all members who have earned them.
We would also like to welcome those who joined our ranks recently. It's good to see some new faces and hope you are all enjoying yourselves.
With the increase of membership over the last 6 months, the number of events we are holding has also increased. This has brought our attention into reviewing one of our Code of Conduct rules regarding replying to all of our events. Starting this month, replies will only be mandatory for our 'Official' events. These will be the main events designed for a large number of members or include another squadron. These events will always be posted in the calendar by the end of the previous month, and will be listed in our events section of this newsletter. The event names on the calendar will also be prefixed with [Official] to make them easily identifiable for everyone. Remember we have the Leave of Absence panel in the UCP if you are going to be away for more then a few weeks and can not reply to the events you need to.
Thank you to everyone who put forward donations this month. Unfortunately we are not quite at our goal amount yet for the 2nd server's SSD. As soon as we get that SSD sorted, and windows installed we will have our 2nd server up and running.
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.
