We are coming closer to our 15th Anniversary of Fly UK, so you will see more about this here and in the forums during March.
Last month's activity at Fly UK had an average of 332 unique pilots per week filing a PIREP in February. We received 1,670 Mainstream PIREPs, 644 Tour PIREPs and 442 Flying Club PIREPs. Membership numbers currently stand at 980.
The deadline for any new entries to the Aviator's Corner competition is rapidly approaching. Don't forget to get your entry in the pot for a chance to win 30Eur for Simmarket.com.
Additionally, any member submission for the 21st Edition of Skyways must be submitted before March 10th.
Every first Saturday of the month, there is a Simmers meeting at Sherburn Flying club. For our Birthday on the weekend of the 6th April, can we try and get more members and staff to meet up at Sherburn to celebrate our 15th Birthday. Ken Hall UKV1142 is our main man at the meetings and has attended there all the time that Fly UK has been operating.
Please put the date in your diary and post your intentions in the forum post in real world events. Birthday cake may be up for grabs and sometimes there are free rides going, offered by the flying club members to simmers.

Cargo operations have had a major overhaul and the new routes are now live.
We recently announced fleet news which will see the Fly UK VA group through into the summer season including some big new changes as well as growth. The full PR can be found here.
The Flying Club Xmas tour was retired on 01 March 2019. ALL LEGS MUST BE COMPLETED BY 30 April 2019. A new Flying Club Round the World tour has been added and because of the length of some of the legs, some of the weight and type restrictions have been amended for this tour only..
