All Change . . .

The Chairman of the Board, Julian Hickman, briefed volunteers in the Hangar today on the new direction for the Flight.

Gone will be the Introductory Flights for members of the public, forward-looking involvement in STEM or school activities for young people, and any other form of paid public flying. Instead the focus will return to the more limited heritage scope of tasking from the Army Air Corps, fly pasts, memorial flights and displays.

The Flight will be seeking to be financially funded by a grant.

    Great display yesterday for Harwell”s D-Day event and much appreciation for the committed folk who stepped in to fill the gap after HAF’s late cancellation. Maybe the AAC colonels on the Board can help us understand how veterans and memorials didn’t apply here?

    Does that mean that you are not going to WWW this year ?? This all sounds more like the end of an era than the start of a new one. :-((

  3. i heard the managers all left. then we tried to get a refund for our passenger flight we heard nothing and nobody replies to mail. not happy. we were told the haf has gone back to doing just a couple of events and no public flights or schools. thats terrible the guys were really good at fairford last year.

  4. Hey guys, what’s going on? This makes no kind of sense at all!

    The change of direction is sad news for the general public because flying in these historic aircraft is a fantastic experience. Even more disappointing is the way that customers who had paid for flights have been handled. Over two weeks after this announcement, I was finally sent an impersonal notice from Sage (your finance system?) advising of cancellation. The Army Air Corps should feel quite embarrassed about all of this.
