We have not been booked this year - yet. We are available - just! - so if you have any influence ;-) It is a brilliant event.

Ha ha! Nice try! It doesn't work like that - they have to book us, we don't book in!

Terms and conditions vary depending on the event and we negotiate with organisers. Glad that you enjoy the Cat' visitors to Scalaria. PH-PBY has been in the past too.

G-PBYA flew at Duxford today for the first time since it went into the hangar for winter maintenance in October last year. It has a newly overhauled port engine and a new window on the forward port hull. A 45 minute flight out beyond Bury St Edmunds and back with Rod Brooking and Jeff Boyling plus me went successfully and we now look forward to a great season.
