LARRY passed his Silver Wings test quite some time ago, but only recently was presented with his Wing badge, by instructor Paul S; who also took the opportunity to knight him with the Order of the Carbon Prop in recognition of his patience!

MICHAEL F has now made his first solo flights following training by Dennis. Just a bit more practice and he may soon be ready to take his Silver Wings test?

AGM -SUNDAY NOV 21st 2021

It was cold windy, and wet, but that did not deter almost twenty CCMAC members from sheltering in the Clubhouse for an egg and bacon breakfast BBQ, followed by the Covid delayed AGM.

It seems the Club is in good financial health, and running very smoothly under the new committee, which was confirmed today.

Outgoing Treasurer, Arthur was thanked for his efficiency in looking after club finances for several years.
