Dear Members,

More good news this month, with us back showing as Fly UK on the IVAO network. After months of requesting, they have updated the Webeye database.

Last month's activity at Fly UK had an average of 313 unique pilots per week filing a PIREP in November. We received 2,203  Mainstream PIREPs, 645 Tour PIREPs and 678 Flying Club PIREPs. Membership numbers currently stand at  971


UKV1649 - Gray Brett has returned to Fly UK after a period away on leave and has now re-joined the Training Academy staff.


November saw the switch-over in Fly 2 operations to the Winter schedules, as detailed in our main page news story from November 18th. December brings the start of the Wet Lease services for the Canadian holiday market, with European ski routes going live from the second weekend of December. 

We have also brought members news and outline details for the Aurora franchise coming very soon. If you have not yet read it, then you can find the news story on the website.

Finally, but by no means least, our cargo division is undergoing some network updates currently - more details to follow.
