IMPORTANT - MID WEEK FLYING

We all know from our CP courses that there is a procedure for letting the military know where we will be flying on weekdays. Here in Northern Ireland nobody has bothered much because military low flying exercises have not happened for many years. We were forewarned of the last such exercise some time ago but now it appears that this situation has changed  - see report on the latest military low level flying here. This one came as a surprise to everybody.

We are all required by law to ensure that our flights can be made safely. Using the CANP procedure (Civil Aircraft Notification Procedure) is one way of ensuring safety in areas of potential low level military aircraft activity. The notification procedure with the list of UHPC sites, their grid references and codes is here. The club committee is currently considering how best to deal with this and further information will be posted here in due course.
